Hi, I want to build a headboard for my daughter and she sent me a pic of what she likes. I was actually going to make it out of some reclaimed wood, maybe from wooden skids which tend to be red oak. She is into that distressed reclaimed look! My concern is whether red oak will take a stain that well or should I look at another wood like white oak. I have attached the pic she sent me. Your thoughts?
