What type wood?

This desk was gifted to me in my teens by my grandmother. It was painted at the time. I stripped it and stained it probably 20 plus years ago.

Clearing out our storage unit and it is now in my shop. Hoping one of my daughters will take it for the grandkids one day.

I always thought it was oak, but thought I'd ask the experts. Some of it is quartersawn, but there are no apparent medulary rays, which I'd expect in oak.

Probably oak, but also wonder if it could be ash. Red oak is quite porous with large open pores (hence great for bending) vs. white oak.
