I'm about to start a production run of my feeders / houses. I was thinking of using white oak ply and boards but I'll have to go for a drive to get it. The local borg's stock red oak in both ply and boards.
Are there any things about red oak that would make it a no go? The wood will be stained and varnished. I don't care about the wood colour but I do want the grain to be apparent.
