Okay, so now I’m having a bit of fun with this. And I think I’ve gotten a good enough picture for all to confirm. By the way, your iPhone has a “magnifier” setting which is really there so those of us that need to read a menu with small font can manage. But it also works as a magnifier of end grain and then you can take a screenshot of it and post it to your buddies on lumberjocks.

OP’s pic is WO, and that is a cool camera. Also end grain pics do show what I though was pine to be Poplar.

A good read about the differences between red, and white oak.

Put more simply, dots open = red oak, dots closed = WO. However if water, and wet, aren’t a factor, especially with QS wood. Red Oak offers a much larger, better looking ray fleck, so for that indoor wall cabinet, I’d go RO every day.
