What does the end grain look like?
High mag end grain pic will help identification

What ever the wood species, it looks like lumber was cut from smaller tree(s), and it is #2 common grade with all the defects. The 4th and 5th images appear rift sawn, rest are flat sawn.
The dark lines between early/late wood are black, so a really dark dye stain was used.

Hard to not suggest black walnut (BW)?
The figure around the small defects, grain variation, and color remind me of classic #2 common BW.

This is steamed BW with MS on top for comparison of variation commonly seen ?

Best Luck!
