The kind you see on old northern European furniture? Here's one example:
Looks like pine from this distance.
Is it a bit pale for pine? It does look like pine, but white washed maybe? Or it could just be the lighting.
I think it's pine. It's probably just a native species of pine that looks different than what we have in the U.S.
It's definitely from a coniferous wood, but I don't know it it's pine, fir, larch... or what. I'd like to make something out of wood like this, or that approximates it -- the kind of tight grain and the color. I'm thinking maybe carefully selected Doulas fir?
Looks like pine to me too....
Could it be spruce? Looks like the photo below, to me.

Ah, yes, it does look like it might be spruce. I wonder if spruce turns yellow like pine does, with oil or polyurethane....
I have a few antique English pine pieces and an Irish one; and I would bet money that it's pine. It also looks like it's had a light wash of a sheer white stain.
I agree, definitely some kind of coniferous species (pine, etc)
When you google spruce armoire you get this:
From the co. attached .
Looks pretty close.

I'm pretty sure it's Douglas fir, we have floors like that in our lake house. We stained them.
Try your question on the woodworking forum, perhaps.
" I wonder if spruce turns yellow like pine does, with oil or polyurethane..."
The POLYURETHANE is what yellows, NOT whatever surface it is applied to.
