Trying to ID some Wood Please
I have a few pieces of old furniture that I am trying to ID the proper wood used.
The first is a 1940ish (I think!) folding half-bed with attached mattress - like a upscale cot.
The second is a primitive handmade sitting swing that has a tilt back that lets you sit toward the East in the morning - then you flip the back and it faces the West so you can enjoy the sun set.
I think the bed is Mahogany - but not positive.
The swing - I have no idea because I do not know where it originated as I purchased it at an auction. I am located in Alabama - so if it was local it could be Pine or Oak.
I would like an opinion as to the style/period of the swing also if that would not be too much trouble.
Many Kind Regards...
