This is an old wardrobe I got from my grandmother. It had a tag inside saying it was manufactured in 1956. This had multiple coats of paint when I got it. About 30 years ago I stripped it down, removed the door panels as they were in bad shape and replaced them with glass. Then stained it and applied clear coat. I have always wondered what type of wood it's built from. Any ideas??

Gum. Not used much today, but was the primary wood for Southern produced mid-level furniture that stained or painted.
