What kind of non-stained wood for mudroom lockers
We ware designing wood mudroom lockers. We live in Ontario, Canada so long snow season. We have four kids. Our plan was to choose a wood that was not too yellow (not pine), and can stand up to the wear and tear it will receive. We don't want to stain or paint the lockers as we think they would require re-painting and re-staining frequently. We would prefer to put another coat of varnish on from time to time as opposed to re-staining or re-painting. So the wood has to look good with just varnish.
Can you suggest a species of wood that would wear well and not yellow or get too orange over time (most of our colours are cool greys, blues, etc)?
