In Response To: Globe Wernicke Three Stack Bookcase (Brenda C. Smith)

Every one of these book cases I have seen were dark oak, that was the office style. Not to mention that shellac darkens over time. If it's oak you should see the amber colored quarter sawn rays that radiate toward the center of the tree's original form. Mahogany will not have this but has a cross hatched grain instead.
