The first photo is where I sanded thru the finish…. On the bottom side of the crib…in an out of sight place… In case they wanted it back in usable shape… It does not appear to be veneer being that with simple lacquer thinner, the finish and stain came of with a couple of strokes…. I did a little more research and it seems “whitewood”. Is a broad term for poplars, pines and spruces… They apparently have different types over there than we are used to seeing here… And being it comes from china… We may not be familiar with it… I tend to agree with lee… It’s probably some very inexpensive, and light weight wood (shipping in containers across the pacific)... That’s just structually sound enough not to be sued for injury claims but is not sound enough for salvage or repair… If anyone else has more info, please feel free let me know… I’m learning, and any info I can get is a huge help…

Thanks for the posts!!!
