Im a newbie so please be patient. I will be building this bed soon and the customer wants to use plywood. I'm thinking of maybe 3/4 oak or maybe birch. They are very easy going and just want it stained dark. Which type of plywood takes the stain well? Oak? Also, ill be using the wood edge banding and staining that to match. I've never stained that but I apply it then stain the whole piece of wood right?

I am a newbie to this sight. I've been building things all my life. I'm just now getting into more of the furniture type projects and not general construction. I am in NO way as experienced or as wise as many people on this forum. I will learn and share what I know.

No offense taken. This customer is actually my aunt. I just didn't feel like going into all that when I posted earlier. I'm building this bed for one of her family members. She wanted me to do it because she saw this bed I built for my nephew. The bunk bed was really fun to build and I told her I'd build this bed with drawers for her. I've been reading a lot on these forums about the staining and what's involved. Also which ones take it better. From what I've read the oak is what I was considering I just wanted to ask. FYI. The bed with drawers I'm building does not include the dresser or night stands. I'm still researching everything about this build before I buy anything. But like I said. I'm new to these types of projects and new to this website. Please be patient with my ignorance.
