    Default Wood ID Please

    My girlfriend wants to sell furniture that she inherited from her father. The problem is that she has no idea what kind of wood it is and neither do I. I think its important to state the kind of wood when I place the ad on Gumtree - can anybody please ID it from the attached pics? Many thanks in advance.

    Looks like Pine that has been stained, however not easy to ID wood by a photo. Best is to sand back some raw wood, as in unstained and smell it.

    Have a look to see if you can find a piece which is lighter in colour, i.e. unstained and send a photo. Best place to look would be underside of leg, maybe back of headboard.

    That is Oregon Pine - manufactured by Aquarius during the early 80's - it lasts forever
