Was going to say Alder but some people don’t think that’s funny anymore, So guess I would go with Red Oak.

Looking at the Wood Data Base I swear the Pic. for Red Oak and the one for Alder are the same? Exactly?
I stand by the Red Oak as any Alder I have used is finer grain. But then again Tony is from Calgary and could never be incorrect? LOL!

Haven’t you heard, Alder guess’s are no longer allowed on this Site! (Unless discussing Fire Pits?)

Not a guess, the pores are to closed, no open grain like oak.

I’m going to agree with Fridge, Alder. My bad. Fridge isn’t here yet.
