Great Score, CJ!!!

I really like working with red oak. When using a router, make shallow passes. I have found it tends to splinter. But, it finishes beautifully. The grain is so pronounced.

My favorite wood for cabinets, desks, you name it. It’s tough yet pliable and finishes like a dream. Even butt joints look good!
