    Comments about Oak, Red 3/8" x 3" x 24" :

    The two red oak boards were needed for a crane truck toy I was making for my grandson. The boards were exactly what I needed, good quality, but they had different coloration on each piece. One was much more pinkish than the other. Since my project was a wood toy, it didn't make much difference and I know you may not be able to match grain patterns and color, but it just kind of surprised me that when I ordered only two pieces, they would be so different in color. I do appreciate being able to buy so many different species of wood for small wood toy projects and have ordered more than once.
