    Hi there all,

    We are adding some new woodwork to an original Victorian kitchen and I need to try to identify the original wood. I think it might be red oak??

    This photo shows it when I sanded it back before oiling it so shows the true colour. The dust was a kind of reddish grey in colour.

    I'd also like to know where I can buy some more of this!

    Thanks in advance!

    Grain is too open for a hardwood, probably pine.

    Larch? Can be quite red and would explain the paler sapwood or what looks like it. What did it smell like when it was sanded? Larch has a sharper smell than normal pine IIRC.

    You need to send a pic taken at 90deg from surface or were all wasting our time guessing from this angle it could be anything from baltic pine to afromosia
