Bark looks like it, but I've never seen the inside of a pin oak. Looks pretty in your pics.

I built a pin oak table, but the wood was more yellow than red.

I cut my first pin oak this winter that got fed into the wood burner. Looked exactly like that, big wide growth rings. It was one of the trees I cut down when I cleared the woods for my house. I definitely wasn't a fan, way too much ash in the burner.

Definitely a red oak.  Could be pin oak, could be scarlet oak.  The presence of the very distinct silver streaks on the bark are more a characteristic of scarlet oak, although they can occur on pin oak too, usually just not as distinct as in your picture.

They do look very similar to each other from the leaf, but the acorns are very different.

Thanks guys.  While I see that scarlet oak does grow in Missouri, itís not as widespread as pin oak.  Iím gonna guess that itís pin oak.  My buddy will probably bring it to me to mill.

You'll know once you start sawing, just sawed my first pin oak this past weekend. It was hard. The 18-24" logs looked clear on the outside but they were littered with small knots, I suppose it got it's name from the 100s of pin knots. The boards came off the saw looking almost black and not nice looking, within an hour they were all the normal color of red oak.
