Radio, you might consider walnut. Walnut and cherry look great together in cutting boards, but I don’t know how they would look as stains on (red?) oak. FWIW

Art, after looking online at walnut and cherry, they would be my first choice, but they are out of my price range for what I’m making. Sure wish I could afford them! So I will be sticking to red oak. I will look into walnut stain and see if it goes well with the cherry. Thanks for the advice!

A traditional treatment for oak is ammonia fuming which turns it dark. You can simulate with stain or dye. Or just ebonize.
