Help Need Wood identification :D x3
Hello, Just starting to strip all the paint off everything (lifetime project)... and I need some help identifying some wood around the house.
First picture wood trim in my house. Any guesses as to why kind of wood this is. 1944 house.
Wood floor that is under my carpets... what kind of wood??? same 1944 house
Wood doors in my house.. what kind of wood?? also from 1944 house

Any help would be amazing!! I know NOTHING about woods. Someone saw my floors and thought they were maple however they were not sure.

The base board and the door are easily fir, but I don't recognize the floor. Could possibly be maple as suggested, as it has no distinguishing grain.

i would call the door douglas fir. maybe the baseboard too. what part of the country are you in?

thank you :D
I am in Winnipeg MB Canada. I am not surprised about the Fir as many houses around this area have this similar trim. As for the floors I have no clue. As I stated earlier someone who had similar floors said they "thought" they were maple. I do know my neighbor with a house built on same street but 20 years earlier has maple.
