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.
