    Need contrasting wood

    I am building a TV stand for a friend. It is out of red oak and I am going to make the handles out of a different type. Door size is about 18x18 and handles will be about 3" long, for reference. What would contrast but not look to awful?

    Yes I will take pictures

    walnut has some, major grain in it that would go with the coarse grain of the oak.
    If in Doubt, Build it Stout!

    I was just looking thru the rack seeing what was there. Walnut would be a good choice and easy to get more of if I had to .
