I love the look of this wood. Can you please tell me what was done to the rift-cut oak to give it this look? What specific stain was used? Thank you.

Honestly, I couldn't tell you- the GC's cabinet maker made several samples and the chosen one definitely had some blues and grays in it. I believe all of the samples were mixtures of Minwax products...

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Vanessa Brunner added this to Houzz Tour: Brooklyn Townhouse Full of Light
Although it's bolder than the rest of the home, the clients were completely on board with this paneled oak niche."I think it's a slightly modern, clean, but warm touch that counter-balances the traditional elements," says Herzog. The walls in this space are paneled with 10-inch-wide rift cut oak, stained in a blue/gray.
