The one on the right looks like Oak to me for sure. Can’t tell if it’s red or white though. White Oak is excellent for outdoor applications. Red, is not. Can’t tell at all about the one on the left. Maybe Maple? Need some closer pics showing grain and pics of end grain on both pieces to help you nail it down.

After re-reading, you say it will be under an overhang. So I assume not directly exposed to rain? If that’s the case, finish is more important than the type of wood.
