KB: I use pine because it is cheap. The wood conditioner and them golden oak will give the desired color. I’d love to make it out of oak, but I’d have to get a part time job to pay for it. Very little wood comes in 1/2 inch that is not plywood. I used plywood for the drawers and 3/16 for the bottom of the drawers. All the rest was white pine. The top took 3, 1/2 boards to glue up/KregJig. Much rather have one big board that is not composite. Anyway, its done, less the finish and it came out quite good.
