Help with Identification - 14 replies

I picked up this piece of wood from a flooring shop that was moving. It measures approximately 14” x 24” x 1-1/4”. At first, based on the orangish/reddish tint, I thought that it might be cherry.

Barbecue Plates - 1 reply

Any thoughts on what domestically available hardwood that should be used to make plates similar to ones shown on Amazon? The ones for sale are made from “Acacia” wood. I would assume that something like Red Oak would be a poor choice and that hard Maple would be a better choice. Any suggestions?
