My best guess would be big leaf maple based on bark and heartwood color.

That was my best guess too, although alder was mentioned as a possibility, but the bark doesn't look like alder, and it's considerably harder than alder.

Agreed, the bark doesn’t look like alder.   Nice piece of wood for sure.
