I am building my daughter a tack trunk. I have noticed that most build them from plywood and edge the box with a hardwood. My preference is always to use hardwoods. All the furniture I have made is either solid cherry or walnut. I would like to use Mahogany to edge the box but I would prefer to use a hardwood to build the box itself.
Is there an affordable hardwood that would serve as a good alternative to a plywood that would stain well compared to real mahogany?
