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.

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.

    • Probably had my best shot of the week/month/year/life today. I was hitting block fades with driver all day today (well each of the 5 times I hit driver anyways), so on #18, I predictably hit a block fade over the trees on the right of the hole onto an adjacent fairway. If you hit the ball far enough to get past the trees, you have an unobstructed approach to the green, but the green becomes shorter front to back than if you are in the right fairway due to the bad angle. I was about 135 yards to the hole, slightly uphill (I could see the top half of the pin). Without my PW I had to hit a partial 9-iron. I flushed it and the flight of the ball never left the flag. I almost wanted to do a Tiger club twirl and start confidently stalking after the ball. I saw it hop once and then lost sight of the ball behind some mounds. Walked up to the green and saw my ball peaking out of the cup atop the pool noodle. Pitch mark was about 8 feet from the hole. First eagle since I was in college 20+ years ago.
    • 97, 51/46 with a 10 on a par five on the front (3 water balls). First time playing this course, Maccasin Run in PA. Beautiful track. Absolutely pristine.  Grass everywhere even in the rough. Leaves cleared off. Tightly mown. No excusses for hitting a bad shot.  Weather low 50s with a slight breeze.  
    • Shot an 86 today, with 13 GIR/nGIR, 29 putts, and 2 penalty strokes. Only carried 8 clubs today (Driver, 3-hybrid, 5/7/9-iron, 50/60 degree wedge, putter), so hit a lot of partial shots, which I enjoyed. Overall golf was very solid, but I had two bad holes where I was +7. First one was on #1, where I blocked my drive down the right side, bounced off a cart path into the ether, so dropped with a 2 stroke penalty. Then my approach (4th stroke) got rejected by a branch, and 5th shot was over the green. Pitch on and 2 putts for an 8 (+4). Second one was on the par-3 7th. Another block, this time with 5-iron, also caught a cart path and bounced about 30 yards past the green. Rushed my 2nd shot since I was standing in the playing line of golfers on another hole and came up well short. Another pitch landed short, and finally a pitch onto the green and 2 putts for a 6 (+3). Finished the round with a hole out for eagle on the 18th which made the round very satisfying overall.
    • Holed out an approach for eagle in today’s round. I think it’s been over 22 years since my previous (and only other) eagle.
    • Day 352 Played 18 today. Really stiff and sore from painting and moving furniture around all weekend, so only carried 8 clubs. Focused on good takeaway/backswing and tempo. Played pretty well, except for 2 holes where I was +7.
