Hello everyone. I’m essentially new to woodworking so I have a lot of basic questions, but the one that is holding me up at the moment is deciding on what wood to use based on the finish. My wife wants a desk built for my daughter’s bedroom to be painted white to match the bedroom furniture. The bedroom furniture has a melamine type appearance to it. I’m trying to decide between a hardwood plywood or just use MDF?
Second question is, I saw a type of white wash stain that Minwax has that is white, but slightly shows the grain. If she looks at that and says she likes it better, I’m thinking of using maple or pine.
Thoughts? I have to assume it makes sense to choose the wood based on the finish you want.
