Hey Hayley it looks as if you've abandoned this task???
No response and no checking in, happy to do this but I'm now booked out so going to withdraw my offer as I put it in two weeks ago.
All best.
Hi Hayley,
Firstly the top isn't original it's a pine bevelled piece that replaced an old top which would have been boards, you can tell by the era and craftsmanship of the bottom half.
By looking at the bottom I can tell you it's possibly Kauri Pine with cheaper inlaid door panels which was commonly used in that style of furniture at the time.
Please be aware that the bottom will look nothing like the top nor match it when striped back because the bottom is a 1950's piece and the top is possibly 80's.
Different timbers, different eras.
Regards Natania
What's the original colour?
So Hayley, did you want it that yellowish colour shown on the inside, or back to wood grain? Or did you have something else in mind?

As close to the original colour as possible.
Hi Hayley is this a simple sand and stain job you are after.
Thanks Aron
