Red Oak

kitchen cabinets - 1/4 sawn white oak with a black rubbing stain is what I saw and loved. Would red oak work?

This is for our lower cabinets and drawers in our new kitchen. The cabinet guy wants us to use red oak rather than white. We asked for a sample from him. Has anyone seen the red oak stained black? What do you experienced woodworkers think?

Quarter sawn white oak will have medullary ray fleck that will not be apparent in red oak. Red oak is not a bad wood but don't expect it to look the same. Quarter sawn white oak was a favorite of the arts and craft movement. Take a look at the mission style furniture from Stickley to get an idea why it was and is so popular.

You will pay significantly more for quarter sawn white oak. Here in New England it's about twice as expensive as flat sawn red oak and sometimes hard to find.

Wait for the sample!
