Just curious what type of wood veneer is on this dresser? It’s banged up and I’m going to strip it down and refinish it, wasn’t 100% sure what I’m working with.

Some one may disagree with me but I think we can rule out Alder.

I would guess one of the cheaper mahogany’s or alder. Teak and walnut are too expensive for that cheap dresser.

Are you sure it’s worth your time it’s a very unappealing piece. I hope you found it by the curb and didn’t pay.:(

It is ugly but check the drawer fronts, continuous grain, just out of order.
