Woodworking pros - Can you identify this wood?

momfromthenorthNovember 23, 2008

Hi,

I've linked to a photo of some cabinets we just had installed and I'm wondering if you can tell me what kind of wood they are made out of? They do have a dark stain on them. Oak, pine, maple or something else?

Thanks!

Here is a link that might be useful:

Maybe birch.

Definitely not oak or pine. Maybe maple, and birch is a good guess too. You're not going to get a definitive answer from photos like this.

Could be poplar, maybe alder.
