How should I determine what material to use for my project?
I have a small older home with very little storage/closet space. I wanted to add a closet/storage bench along a wall in my dining room. I drew up some rough plans and took them to local Amish builders for a quote. They came in at $2500. We had them do our kitchen cabinets and they did a fantastic job, however this being a smaller project and to save $$, I decided I would like to tackle this on my own. I like doing DIY projects and we have done some other home remodeling. I would like to know what material should I construct my unit out of .
