Original Gus Stickley pieces were predominantly quartersawn white oak, but mahogany and figured maple were also offered. Judging by what appears in auctions mahogany and maple were not very popular. In my opinion the designs work well with any quality hardwood, cherry and walnut for example. I don’t consider red oak as usable for nice furniture.
