Wood Species

This is most probably Birch, in fact the comments about slicing veneer differently now versus then are completely erroneous. Birch are small trees, then and now they are mostly rotary sliced which is the predominant way they are now. Finding this is actually easy most Home Depots and Lowes carry rotary Birch plywood. The hard part is faking the patina, with age, Birch develops an amber tone (as well as the lacquer that would have been used). Leaving the material in the sun will speed up the process, a week or so will make a huge difference. Also you can tint the finish to mimic the color as well.
