    I certainly am not a wood expert, but recently I’ve been comparing woods because my new cabinets are maple. Maple has a fine grain and is pretty light. Your photo looks like the maple wood I’ve been checking out.

    Knowing the name of the manufacturer in many cases really does tell the tale. Most quality furniture has an imprint somewhere.

    Maple, stained to look like cherry. The grain is loose like maple. birch is a little tighter grained.

    It’s maple imo.

    Looking for a manufacturers mark could help confirm this.

    Btw, why does ypur sister need to know what wood it is?

    Maple. The black silica streaks are the give away for me. Birch usually has orange-ish streak, if any, and it would be yellower after 20 years unfinished, in my opinion.

    Once you apply a cherry tone stain, you could use either of them and it would be a pretty good match. I’ve seen lots of birch base with cherry stain right up against a cherry floor with no one the wiser.

    Hey, yeah the lady who was looking to buy the set was asking what type of wood it was. Monday night the lady came by my sisters place, left a deposit and picked it up last night.

    So thanks to all the replies on the topic, great resource in the BTP site and all the members.

    It certainly fooled me 🙂 They look a lot alike when the maple is stained to look like cherry . . The grain is similar too .
