what wood to use for intertainment center
I was hoping someone could tell me the best material to use?
Im planning on building an entertainment center, noting fancy 60"x24"x40" I would like it to resemble cherry. I thought i would make the carcass out of plywood faced with oak or birch.
the face frame out of 1"x2" solid oak.I would like to use solid cherry for the face frame and ply with cherry veneer but im having trouble finding those items in my area, so im stuck with lowes or homedepot. So i guess my question is if you had to pick from materials from those two stores would u use oak, birch or something else to come close to a cherry once finished. I know noting will replace real cherry but that seems not to be an option.
thanks for your help
