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.
