I don't know about age - Ash can be brown as well as white so colour isn't necessarily a sign of age.
Looks professionally done. There was a guy demonstrating poker work at Waterperry's Art in Action, nr. Oxford but I can't remember his name.

Thanks Naomi the photos are very poor, taken in artificial light.

Not poker work but due to poor pic's can understand you suggesting that.

I must learn my woods (wood grains) : )
