i may be wrong here, but in the pictures, the cabinets and door/drawer fronts appear to be red oak. have you tried sanding an inconspicous area to see what happens? the drawer and doors appear to be solid wood, and are candidates for refinishing - stripping and refinishing. the cabinet face frames may be solid as well, or veneered. in eiher case could also be refinished. if that sounds too hard, maybe a light sanding and a wipe on finish. others will chime hopefully.
