Incredible work! Is that red oak or white oak? I can’t see the grain well enough in the photo to tell. I would not have thought of combining those two, but the contrast is great. I will consider that pairing the future. Thanks for sharing.

It is red oak. The top and side panels are red oak 3/4 plywood with solid wood edges.

The auction brought $350. To a good cause, so I’m very happy about it.

There is some great craftsmanship in this piece, well done!

You are killing me with only one picture! Any progress photos or other angles to add?
