Made me look. Could also be black ash, though the end grain is rather vague. No shimmer on the face and quarter like the good old interlocked elm we grow up north.

I thought Elm as well, take a look at the back side of the side panel where the wavy grain is located - certainly has that pheasant feather look to it. But the very straight grained forward stuff had me puzzled on declaring it Elm.
Not that it'll be definitive or anything, but the guy's from Kalifornya (IIRC) - I was trying to come up with woods common in that neck of the world. Wouldn't be carob or somesuch would it?
I'm sure he could be emailed - or maybe the FWW website has the asked and answered question already posted.

We have 5 kinds of elm in Arkansas, and there is some variation between them in the appearance of the wood. They do have the feathery characteristic in common. There are also international species of Elm. Some of the early Chinese furniture was made with a wood called Yü-mu that has been identified as elm.
