I would probably bank on the red maple versus sweetgum (redgum).  The bark in the photos looks similar to sweetgum but the wood grain in sweetgum seems more variable than what I see presented by Ishvp1979.   I thought about red elm but the bark and wood is completely different, plus it has a very distinct and really unpleasant odor when cut.

Here are some additional sweetgum photos of logs I have cut.  




Here is red elm...
