Default refinished chest of drawers

Here is a chest of drawers I refinished a few years ago, not sure if it is maple or cherry.

Bought it used, came with a dresser, mirror and bed, seems to have been in a fire at one point, refinished the dresser and gave to one of my daughters.

I got lost in thought. it was unfamiliar territory.

That is a very nice piece of furniture.
