Hi,

I don’t know much about wood at all, so I was wondering if someone could help me out identifying the wood used to make this chest I bought at a garage sale. Some parts look layered and some look solid (plywood? or Half plywood and something else?), so I’m not really sure how it was made but it is definitely handmade. I took some pictures, let me know if anyone could give me a insight on this piece. Thanks in advance.

Maple, and of course plywood.

Looks like Birch plywood on the drawer fronts , and lesser plywood everywhere else.
I can’t see enough of the frame or drawer sides in your pictures to tell what kind of solid wood it is.

-- I'm absolutely positive that I couldn't be more uncertain!

Thank You everyone for the replies. I come across wood pieces all the time, so I’m trying to get more educated on the types and all that.
