Cabinet wood

I a, installing a new 32" flat screen to replace the old tube TV. Does anyone know the type of wood that WRV used in the cabinetry? The stain appears to be a cherry and I thought that the wood was maple, but when we tried a sample piece, it was obvious that the wood was not maple. My next guess is cyprus.

You can take a piece of the old cabinet to a hardwood store or cabinet shop and they can identify it for you. As for the stain, you can also take that old piece of cabinet to a good paint store and they can match it for you. Then just test it on a scrap of the new wood. I just finished my 32" TV install and finished mine with 3 coats of polyurethane and it came out fine. Good Luck

On the inside cover of your outside water heater vent there should be a label with the wood type printed on it.

Mine is Ash. It even says so inside the TV cabinet (when TV is removed). Also the brochure says Ash with choice of stain color.
