I see no pictures. It's like there hasn't been any uploaded.

I think you have more than one kind of wood there. It's difficult to tell with the finish on it but the majority of it looks like alder or cherry. The panels look like a straight grain ash.

My guesses are rift sawn red oak for the door panels, and clear flat sawn white pine for the rest.

I agree it's two kinds of wood...panels look like rift sawn red oak, rails look like cherry.

The tools don't make the craftsman....
