I'm about to put hardwood in my kitchen, and I'm planning to feather it into the existing hardwood that runs throughout the rest of my first floor. To my untrained eye, I thought it looked like #2 White Oak. I had a reputable pro in to give me a quote to finish the floor, and he was sure this was the same red oak used in new construction. I think new construction is usually 'select grade', but this looks like a lower grade to me. A second opinion would be greatly appreciated!
