It has the color of red oak, but I am intimately familar with oak, and I'm pretty sure it's not red oak (no open pores). Could it be a red tinted white oak???? I thought it may be birch but it's not the right color - maybe a redish tinted birch???? I understand that ash is very similar to oak. Does ash have the same porous nature as oak or is it closed/tight grain structure.
Anyway, dad bought it super cheap (around $7-$8 per sheet) and offered it to me because he doesn't have a use for it. It may end up in my next project,,,,,,,, whatever it is.
