Different woods have different properties. Alder, for instance, is a light, easy to stain wood with no particular grain pattern and a very consistent color. It doesn`t have a lot of resistance to shock, however, so you shouldn`t try using it for shelves that might be easily dinged or damaged. Birch is another light colored wood that stains well, but it`s strong and hard, and has a noticeable fine wavy grain. Aspen is similarly light and evenly grained. It`s also very easy to find in shelves.
