Thank you very much. I have no way of geting acess to sodium nitrate as I live in canada. I belive Kno3 and Nano3 are both banned here. I looked to see if Hydrogenperoxide will work but got no info on that. Its just that some of them looked paler in color.

There’s not much white oak in Canada (I assume this is local wood). Other than in southern Ontario and Quebec where there is some true white oak, you get isolated pockets of burr oak (in the WO family). Check out this distribution map:
So I defer to others on the identification, but the chances are much greater that it’s red oak.
