True story: There was an old lady that had a walnut orchard and didn’t want to deal with the mess every year as the walnuts dropped to the ground. Walnut trees make a very big mess. She knew of a man down the street that hired himself as a handyman to neighborhood homeowners for odd jobs they didn’t want to do. It gave him much needed money for his family. She asked the handy man how much he was charge her to cut all the trees down and hall them to the dump. He told her that he would do it for free. He would also dig up the stumps, roots and all, and plant a nice lawn where the orchard used to be. He milled the trees, stumps, and roots himself. After a couple of years, he sold most of the wood and became a rich man.

nice story....but
What does this have to do with the type of wood he's asking about?
Sorry just curious.

I think it looks like mahogany veneer in the pics where the light didn't wash it so heavily.

Looks like crotch walnut veneers with quartered sycamore for the drawer sides.
