What type of wood to use
Long time listener, first time poster.
I am planning a media cabinet / book shelf with a face frame and panel doors. I was thinking birch plywood carcass and painting the whole unit with a white enamel.
What type of wood should I make the face frame? Birch? Popular? Pine? Does it matter if I paint it white anyway?
And if I go to the trouble of custom making a cabinet... Do I really want to paint it white?
Anything but oak. I am tired of red oak.
Thanks, I value your expert opinions.
