I plan to build 3 book cases to make a wall unit. I got some Birch
hardwood Plywood and was going to use Pine for the trim and doors etc.
Now I think Pine and Birch are not good match. However Ash and Maple
are more expensive.
What do you think, go with Pine or loose the pocket and go with
The other thought I had, maybe go with solid Pine and do not use
plywood, but I got a very good deal from Home Depot on 3/4 regular
Besides actual birch, maple will do best to match the birch ply. That
said, I've built a few pieces with birch ply & pine trim and with a
light stain they look fine. I don't think ash will go well with birch
ply at all.
