Does that have finish on it or is that bare wood? What’s the weight like?

it’s a finish. It’s not too heavy, I’m not positive how to answer that one. I’m assuming it’s something pretty common and I don’t have to get the answer 100% correct. I’m trying to build another piece to match and just don’t want it to be noticeably different. Maple or Oak maybe? And within those would it be hard or soft, white or red. I’m just starting to try to do non-painted work so I have no idea. Thanks.

My guess is maple with some sort of a mahogany stain.

I don’t think it’s Oak just looking at the grain pattern. My guess is Pine, with some sort of mahogany stain. Push on it hard with your fingernail, if it leaves a mark it’s a soft wood, If not you’ve got a hardwood.

The piece in back looks a lot like good ol’ Southern Yellow Pine with a mahogany stain on it. I don’t kinow the dimensions, but it looks like a 1×8 or 1×10. I’ve got several boards in my shop that look just like that. Just a guess, but I’d bet (a little).

Set of coffee and end tables. I attached another picture for your reference but I’m completely ok with SYP as it’s the cheapest. Separately, anyone have any websites where I could try to match hinges? I found a few but no luck yet.

Thank you all very much
