Wooh, intense eyes, are they as bright as they look?

BTW, the "tightness" of the grain on the oak is because the face of the board was cut perpendicular to the growth rings. When we woodworkers desire such a grain, we order boards that are "rift" or (for the tightest grain) "quarter" sawn. For less vertical grain, we order "plain sliced", this is what you're seeing on the cedar. Quarter sawn wood produces the most waste in milling, so it always costs a lot more.

You definitely made the right choice of wood, it's very "witco-esque".
