I Am making a sewing cabinet for a customer, This picture shows an example of the other furniture in her home that she really likes. Her father was a furniture maker no pressure there right. So I need to figure out what type of oak this is or choose one that will look a lot like it. There are so many species of oak I cant keep up/ But I know some of you guys are damn good so thanks for any help you can provide in identifying this wood. I know the stain color just not the species of oak.

Just plain red oak.
You’ll need to find a stain to match.

I agree with Gerry. I have used it to build furniture and cabinets for almost 4 decades but it isn’t my favorite wood.
