I have some wood that I’ve used for a few projects, and I have no idea what species it is. I salvaged it from the drawer boxes from a few pieces of trashed bedroom furniture made by the Limbert furniture company, which I understand ceased operations in 1944, so the wood is quite old. I’m posting a couple of pictures, in hopes that someone here can tell me what it is.
One photo is a single piece, after going through my planer. The other photo is of one of the drawer backs, which is made of 2 pieces glued together. (I think the 2 pieces are the same wood) It still has the original ~70 year old finish on it. The grain in the lower half of this piece looks exactly the same as in the first photo, which may not be obvious, as the photo was taken from a little farther away.
