Default Wood Species Identification

Would like help identifying the wood species in the attached pictures. All 3 pictures are from the same bedroom set.

It sure looks like pecan to me. Can you get a shot of the bare wood anywhere on the dresser? Maybe on a drawer side?

Here are shots of the drawer sides. They have a clear finish.

The drawer sides are oak, but the face panels are pecan.

I really like your drawer pulls, Jim!
They compliment the lines of the cabinet nicely.
Sort of an Oriental style to them?

My wife has the eye for decorating. Way back when it was Oriental. After vacationing in the South West we're on to Mission style

Default Wood Species

Next question. Based on what you see what wood(s) would you use to make some new drawer fronts. Some of you had mentioned that Hickory could be used. I can't find a local Pecan supplier but have found one on-line. My concern is that if I order it on-line I'm not sure what I'll get. I do have a local supplier that has Hickory, and if it will work I can bring some pictures to find a good grain match. Rosewood?
Thank You.
