|Comment||Mr. Klein: Thank you for your promptness and expertise. I will see if the owners have a close up photo prior to restoration. If not, I will see if we can get a better picture for your review. I thought the wood might be Dark Red Meranti(Philippine Mahogany)or Apitong. I have used these in woods in homes I have built and it seemed to have a similar close spaced and uniform grain. Yet the wood on the sofa is darker. I will forward your answer to the owners and again on their behalf thank you for the information. Mark Petersen|
