I am drawing up some plans for an entertainment center that will have drawers and some cabinets built in to it with towers on both sides. It will take up approx. 10' wide by 8' tall. I am planning on staining it as well. What type of wood do you all recommend? Should I do a mix of hardwood and a nicer plywood for things like the sides or areas that won't get much attention? This is not really the first wood project I have done but it will certainly be the biggest project. We just got a nice table saw and I plan on borrowing a nice planer/joiner.
Thanks for the advice in advanced.
