Here are two pictures of a chest of drawers I'm thinking of buying. Can anyone tell what kind of wood it is? The closeup reveals the grain after the guy who is selling it started stripping the chest.

Looks like black walnut veneer, but the close up is a bit too fuzzy to say definitively.

It looks like walnut burl veneer to me also. Do a Google image search to see samples.
