Hi Pattie. Is that solid or a veneer on top of a plywood ?Iit looks like flat sliced veneer. I don’t think it is red oak. I can’t say for sure.

By the way, after I got my hedge trimmer sharpened and put back together, it would hardly run and I found the brushes to be worn down to almost nothing..kind of like that old router you have.

Hello Rosepedal, looks like you have a table made of either ash or chestnut.

If I had to choose one judging only from what I can see in the pics and not being able to look at the end grain, I would say ash too. Ash and chestnut can be distinguished from the end grain based on the arrangement of the latewood pores, and chestnut has tyloses like white oak, ash does not.

I’m not a wood expert but I did have a set of ash cabinets before

and that looks just like ash

Have your say...
