I need some lumber suggestions for the library unit I am bidding on. Originally it was supposed to be all cherry, but they are balking at the costs. Since I don't really want to cut back on the labor, I want to offer some material choices. Their kitchen is that cordovan cherry look and they are wanting to have a similar look for the library. What would you guys use that could be stained or dyed, and how would you finish it?
Thanks for the help!
