Got a nice piece of wood from my dad this past weekend, but neither he nor I know what it is. It's definitely mostly grey-ish.

The piece on top is mahogany - trying to ID the wider piece.

Any thoughts?

Jerry Jordan, you are so right, the last time I saw 'black' walnut I was a kid(my uncle was building the Ark). Compare the grain of the slab I posted and the original. Its the same except for the color. Where do you get your pallets from? What a waste!

I vote Black Walnut .,., I love the stuff.,., and i get some from pallets., exposure to the elements turns most woods gray.,.,at least up in the hills.,.,

When I first saw the piece it was quite rough on the sides; my dad ran it through the planer to get the smooth faces seen in the picture, but the color wasn't significantly different before that.

I'm with Pic, looks like Walnut.

First guess with  a picture only ... looks like walnut to me

I had some "old" maple that was grey like that. Find an inconspicuous spot and either scrape or sand a small area and see if it changes color. Very nice piece of wood. Headstock?
