How to tell the wood.

How can I determine the type of wood used on a particular Senator model from Daneker?
Hi there Joe
What I can tell you is the following: The company used mahogany, known for its tight grain and steak patterns. Mahogany is also known for producing resonant sounds. Cherry was also used. Its grain structure was good and the Daneker clocks made with this type of wood had either light or dark finishes.
Then there was walnut (popular for various shades of brown), maple (for its strength and subtle graining) and pine (that gave off a knotted or swirling appearance, perfect for creating a homey atmosphere).
I can refer you to this site where you should discover the right wood.
