No expert but it may be oak.

Oak has very open pours. Imagine millions of soda straws glued together and then sliced diagonally. 

I can't tell from your photos. Look at the wood closely and at an angle. Like this:P_Site-Finished-Flooring-Red-Oak.thumb.jpg.4ee0d094a59b5ce644ac7a1865136929.jpg

If it's oak, you'll see the open pours.

Is there a non-stained side? Not oak. Could be cherry. These are cherry. Walnut is similar.

No, the back side is stained as well.

Changing my choice, going to The Father In Law for answer, he is a long time wood worker

I was expecting Persimmon or some thing like that when I clicked the thread, but it does not look like a golf club.

I have no clue.

Matt, check with a local cabinet maker.
The cabinets were most likely from a local supplier.
Most cabinets are made of Oak or Maple or even a higher priced wood when an owner specs a specific type.
Your pics look like Mahogany or Walnut.

Here are other Cabinet Wood Types:
Maple, Cherry, Knotty Alder, Red Oak, Hickory, Birch, Knotty Pine, Mahogany, Walnut, Clear Alder and Oak.

This is really good advice. 

As a long time woodworker and a guy who formerly owned his own custom cabinet business I can tell you I'm not sure. 

Here's why. Very often guys like me take cheaper woods and make them look like more premium wood. The best example I can think of is if you give me a pile of Birch, I can build you cabinets and tell you that they are Mahogany and you will never know that they aren't. 

Obviously nobody would ever confuse Maple with Oak or Pine with Ebony. But those are the far ends of the spectrum. A lot of cabinet grade lumber can be made to look very similar. 

Here are some tips. 

1 - Very often non-custom, but still high quality cabinets have a spec sticker on the bottom side of a drawer. Check for that first. If you find the spec or even the maker/product code, BOOM! You're done.  BTW - some manufactures put the sticker on the back of the drawer. 

2 - Check your sink base cabinet for a KCMA label. 

3 - Check the bottom of the wall cabinets or on an inside panel in the sink base cabinet. A lot of time the brand of the cabinet is marked there. Sometimes the color, door style, and construction of the cabinet will be there too. 

4 - If you end up getting just the brand name, you can get their catalog (either online or a real one) and try to match yours up. That's hit or miss, because a lot of times the maker will do just what I said and make a birch cabinet that looks like a mahogany or something of that ilk. But you may be able to figure it out. 

5 - If they are truly custom you will be able to tell because all of the faceplates between two cabinets will be seamless. Meaning the faceplates were put on after the cabinet boxes were installed. If your cabinets have those little lines between the doors or between the drawers than those cabinets were built in a factory or possibly a shop and installed, rather than boxes being custom built and facepates made on site. 

6 - If your cabinets are truly custom. Firstly, congratulations that's mighty rare. Secondly, you will have to contact the builder to find out who did the work. Unless they were like me and stamped (literally) their name and logo on the bottom of every drawer.

7 - If none of that works. You may have to cut into a piece. Fresh cut wood is far easier to identify. 

If you find this stamped on the bottom of the drawers, then I made them.

I think this is the case. The previous owner did mention that cabinets were Amish-made. I checked a few drawers and such, and there isn't any markings on them. The drawers are mostly high end plywood. The face of the cabinets look to be hardwood of some kind. There is some areas were the finish has rubbed off and you can see the grain underneath.

    • When I’m playing a non-handicapped round, I don’t follow a lot of rules. I’ll toss em around if I don’t like a lie or line, pick up once on green and/or within like 6ft, and hit several mulligans. Honestly when not keeping a handicap, play in any way that makes you happy, so long as it doesn’t effect pace of play. 
    • Rule 3 - The Competition Notes as follows. These are notes, not a recap or a summary or anything like that. I didn't do a great job of just writing the NOTES for this rule, instead I just kinda summarized it, particularly the match play part. I'll do better for rule 4. 3.1 - Central Elements of Every Competition Match play, stroke play, or other forms of stroke play determine some rules outcomes Match play is against the opponent, without as much care for "the field" Also have to know if you're playing against an individual or partners Finally, gross or net? 3.2 - Match Play Three ways to win a hole fewer strokes than opponent opponent concedes opponent incurs general penalty You can tie, too: same number of strokes someone makes a stroke on the hole and the players treat it as tied (kinda like a mutual concession) Three ways to win a match: More holes up than remain opponent concedes opponent is DQed Extending a tied match: sudden death, continuation of the same round (so no switching equipment, etc.) holes played in same order unless Committee determines a different one Result is final when something is done as set by the Committee, such as final score posted on a scoreboard, etc. Players may concede the next stroke, hole, or match. Concessions made while ball in motion apply to the next stroke unless it goes in the hole. If knocked away while in motion it has to be obvious that the ball doesn't have a chance of going in. (Spieth in the Ryder Cup.) Concede a hole at any point before the hole is completed (even before it's played), 6.5. Concede a match at any point before it's completed/decided. Concessions are verbal or by an action If a player lifts his ball due to a reasonable misunderstanding that something was conceded, he can replace with no penalty (14.2) Handicaps in match play… DQed if player says handicap too high and doesn't correct before next stroke. If too low, plays off the lower handicap. Given by hole, lower net score wins. If tied match extended, same holes get the same strokes as in regular round. If players mistakenly apply handicap to a hole, result stands unless it's corrected in time. Responsibilities: Player can ask the other how many strokes they've taken at any time, other guy must respond with correct number. Failure to reply is treated as giving the wrong number of strokes. Wrong number is general penalty unless he corrects before asking player makes another stroke, or if after a hole, before anyone makes a stroke on the next hole or before the match is final (exception if the right score doesn't affect the outcome of the hole). Must tell an opponent about the penalty as soon as reasonably possible, even if the player is unaware of the penalty (because players are supposed to recognize when they've breached a rule). Otherwise, general penalty. Exception: no penalty when opponent knew of player's penalty (such as when seeing him take penalty relief). Know the match score. If players mistakenly agree on wrong match score they can correct it before a player makes a stroke to begin another hole or before the match is final if it's the last hole. If not corrected, it becomes the final score. Exception: when player requests a ruling. Protect your own rights and interests. You're not protecting the field here. Players may act on or ignore breaches by opponent. Cannot deliberately agree to ignore breaches, DQ if so. Players can ask for rulings under 20.1b. 3.3 - Stroke Play Winner finishes in the fewest total strokes, net if handicap. Player's score kept on a scorecard by the marker. Marker(s) certify hole scores with player, sign. Player certifies, signs, and returns scorecard. Breach anything here, DQ. Exception: no penalty when marker fails, such as marker leaving with player's card). Wrong hole score: higher stands, lower is DQ. Exception: just pretend you're unaware of a penalty. Stupid. Then the strokes are just included. Player responsible for his handicap being listed on the scorecard. Too high or not shown and affects # of strokes given, DQ. Too low, plays to it. Player not responsible for addition or applying handicap. Player must hole out each hole. If not corrected in time, DQ. Rules 21.1, 21.2, and 21.3 for other forms of stroke play.
    • 2021 Golf Goal - Golf With John  Break 90 consistently. I should hit 89 or better 7 out of 10 rounds. I know I can hit 90's because I've tried better ball (2 balls), and I was able to only hit 4 over in 9 holes.  Better course management. Thinking before my shots. Make good contact Practice range. I've gone out almost every weekday morning in Oct, putting 30 minutes and range a hour. Chipping and putting practice. Trying to get make my body to automatically do what I've learned in my lessons.  New shot shapes (how to hit a fade, draw, low, high). I realized I have no idea how to hits these. If it happens on the course, it's accidental as my only goal was to hit it straight. Play Club tournaments I've played 1 this year and it was a great time. Got to putt every hole!  Oct 2021 goal is to hit 80 from white tees Once i'm comfortable breaking into single digits, I'll move to the back tees. I was able to hit 87 1 time this past year and it was an amazing feeling. Ingrain in my brain, there are bad shots and it sucks but it's okay. We'll get through it.
    • Obviously you/we can't submit those/these rounds for HCP purposes, but when playing with buddies who use golf as an excuse to get together and drink, we allow: the customary Breakfast Ball if first drive is out of play rolling the ball in the fairway (if they're in the fairway, they deserve a good lie) Leaf rule (free drop) if all parties agree the ball was assumed to be in the fairway or just off & most assuredly not out of bounds or a bad enough shot that would've have resulted it being lost in the summer or other times when ground is clear
    • Depending on the OEM, different brands will have either matching lengths in steel and graphite or go with the 1/2 over with graphite. However when they match them for length, the SW is usually 3 or 4 points lighter with graphite. SW can be tricky because it's not just the head weight, it's the relation of the head to the shaft and grip while also factoring in the shaft length and balance point. This means that for every 1/2 change in length, you get a 3 SWP change (longer=heavier). Also for every 9 grams of shaft weight change, you get 1 SWP change (heavier=heavier). Since the average stock graphite shaft is around 30g lighter than the matching steel, 1/2 longer shafts balance things out at least on a swing weight scale.
