Pine is a soft and relatively inexpensive wood, making it perfect for a rustic piece of furniture with lots of texture and character.
Poplar, somewhat harder than pine is a good upgrade for pine. Smooth and consistent grain patterns make for a great surface for paint.
Oak is a classic hardwood. Strong and reliable makes for a great furniture material. Oak has deep grain fissures which create amazing patterns in the furniture.
1.5 inch thick furniture pieces of poplar or oak are made from individual 3/4" boards glued and joined into 1.5" thick stock.
