This question is a little bit of wood question and little bit finishing, in a way. I’m working on a built in cabinet project. I picked up some A-1 birch ply for the carcass of the cabinet. I have enough maple left over from another project that would for face frames and edge banding.
My question is how well would these match up?
I plan to finish dark by first dyeing, then a wash coat of shellac, then GF Java gel stain and a poly top coat. The woods look similar in grain to me and I would assume any color difference will be masked with the dark coloring.
So does anybody know of any voodoo that might occur and mess this up?
