What Wood Is This?


From original questioner:

All three of these picture are from the same piece of furniture. What wood do you think it is?

From contributor Je

Well, I could achieve something very similar with cherry. It's a little tough to say for sure with the small photos.

From contributor Ad

I concur with Jesse

From contributor Ga

I too think think the pics are too small. But from what I can see it looks like ribbon mahogany or sapele. Look at the finish very close. Does the grain look open or possibly filled smooth with a clear or colored filler?

From contributor Mi

1st and 3rd pic looks like cherry and the 2nd looks like mahogany.

From contributor Ge

Yellow birch or soft maple or maybe alder stained so that it looks like cherry.
