Please help me guess species of floor
I moved a cabinet in my kitchen this weekend and discovered what is probably the original wood floor, under 2 layers of linoleum, plywood, paint, and a lot of wax buildup (and even some old newspaper!).
I don't need guarantees; any and all speculation welcome!
This one is just for scale/reference:
Here is a closeup of the grain:
Here is one with mineral spirits spread over the wood:
And here is one more closeup of the grain. Sorry for the newspaper, but there is a good section of grain detail in one corner.
Thanks in advance for your comments. I'd love to know what this might be.
