Aspen Wood for Cabinet Drawers?

Posted by laurat88 (My Page) on

Wondering if anyone has used Aspen wood for their cabinets or vanity drawer boxes rather than the standard maple drawers (internals - doors will be paint grade maple). The cabinet maker is suggesting it as a possible less expensive alternative, but I am wondering about strength and durability as it appears to be a softer, lighter wood. Any ideas?
Thanks in advance!

It's lighter and "softer" but as the interior of a well-built drawer, that's not an issue.
