I have pics of a dresser.
I think it may be Espresso…but that’s not the question.

Please look at the grain. I can not nail it…I am on the fence as to:
a fake (Mahogany)

I just do NOT know what it is…

Please, I really need your Help…so I am asking.

Looks like yellow poplar. Take a pic of the back of the drawer front if it is unfinished on the inside of the drawer.
