I was wondering if you could help me identify this timber, I know its a hardwood with a tight grain.

Looks like oak to me.

Always a tricky question!
While I don't want to disagree, I'm not seeing any medullary rays which would 'prove' it to be oak.
The cut end, showing the rings, is the same as the finished pieces, yes?
Might it be sweet chestnut? Are you in uk, europe, or elsewhere? (Or was it bought from a suppl9ier who may have imported it...?)
Do you need to know because [eg] you want to use steel screws, but are worried about the staining caused by oak.?
Some wider shots would help, and were the photos taken with daylight or artificial as that will affect the apparent colour. (I'm a big help, aren't I! )

I agree w/ John, re absence of rays... & it looks like there's both Summer & Winter growth in those rings.
