Using different types of wood
After a lot of planing I came up with a way to build my next chest of drawers. In order to keep cost down I'd like to use oak in some parts and pine in others. (For example, Oak front of the drawers but pine for the sides and back) and (oak for the front piece of each frame but pine for the other 3 sides) In my plans only the oak would show.
My question is ... Are there any problems with using two types of wood in the same project? Does one type of wood move more than others?
