Might be too light of a color, but has characteristics of some gum lumber I had years ago

From what I've seen around here, my guess is soft maple.
I no longer build museums but don't want to change my name. My new job is a lot less stressful. Life is much better.

First time I've posted in this thread.  Been working on this dresser in earnest for several weeks now.  Daughter and her fiance asked me to make them a suite of bedroom furniture, and this is their design.  Since they came up with the dimensions and the overall look, I had to figure out how to build it.  

Massive dresser/armoire.  42" wide for the bare carcase; 52 inches tall once the top is added.  10 drawers and they spec'd out bearing glides.  Glides not so tough for narrower drawers, but those 38.5" wide drawers got a bit finicky.  Being that wide, any imperfections in the parallel sides were magnified, or so it seemed.  Now, only need to fit 10 drawer fronts. 

I was going to use poplar for the drawer boxes, but I underestimated the need and so opted for the pile of wide pine I've had hanging around in the shop for nearly five years.

Then it's on to a king-size headboard, night stands, and a cheval mirror.   Crazy

It's better to burn out than it is to rust
