try to limit the glare and incandescent/florescent lighting please...

Virola... virola
I didn't see any...

the drawer sides are oak...
the drawer fronts are Pecan...

WTB the panels are Primavera Veneer...

An interesting fact about Primavera Veneer (also known as Prima Vera): The sap of this tree rises and falls with the phases of the moon, which is what happens in temperate zones. When the trees are cut they will wait until the "Dark of the Moon" when the sap content is down to keep the lumber safe from insect attack.

Prima Vera is found in Central America. It is also known as durango, palo blanco, san juan and roble.

Primavera Wood Veneer,Durango,Palo Blanco,Marfim,White Mahogany,Primavera,Copal

Characteristics....
Color/Appearance: Usually ranges from a pale cream color to a golden yellow. Color tends to darken and redden with age. Can exhibit a ribbon-like chatoyant grain pattern similar to quartersawn Sapele.
Grain/Texture: Grain usually ranges from straight to slightly interlocked. Medium texture and medium sized pores, with a naturally high luster.
Workability: Although Primavera frequently has interlocked and irregular grain, it is overall quite easy to work: most likely on account of its rather low density compared to other hardwoods. It does, however, have a moderate blunting effect on cutting edges, so carbide tools are recommended. Primavera also tends to split when nailed or screwed, so pilot holes are recommended despite the wood’s softness. Turns, glues, stains, and finishes well.
Common Uses: Veneer, furniture, cabinetry, and interior trim.
Comments: Primavera looks similar to a number of other wood species, such as Ceylon Satinwood, and is sometimes also referred to as “White Mahogany.”
Related Species: None available.

I sent a email to the manufacturer requesting info on the wood species. This was the response.
"This group is made of Primareva veneers, virola, maple and pecan exposed solids."
Are the drawer sides virola?
