Looks like natural Birch ply. We call natural Birch ply paint grade and the all white face veneer version stain grade. Nothing wrong with varnishing the natural Birch but if they look at you funny when you ask for it try "paint grade Birch "

Probably American red gum (aka sweet gum) but as gee-dub said, we'd need a shot of the end grain to really tell.

Also, you can just compare it to the pics on my site ("gum" page) and see what you think
