My wife and I just found out that we are expecting our first child this December. My wife has tasked my father and I with building nursery furniture.

My question is as follows.

I have designed a crib and matching dresser. I am primarily using Red Oak, and the cost is really starting to add up. The crib has 4 posts and 4 lower supports in various dimensions. I am planning on making the entire crib out of red oak, and using pine for the upright posts and lower supports. The look I am going for is a two tone crib. Can anyone offer advice/suggestions on this idea? am I making a mistake by mixing species of wood and types of stain? If the crib is an Oak/Pine combo with two different stains, can I still make the dresser solid red oak, and achieve the same stain pattern?

My experience with woodworking in general is pretty decent, but I rarely work with stain?

Please help!

Have your say...
