Thabks stryker. do you think I need to worry about the stability of the wood, I keep reading how rift and quarter are so much more dimension stable and worried about possibly cupping

Even plain sawn white oak is strong, much stronger than cherry or walnut, for example. I think the stability of the cabinets will have more to do with the construction than the wood used.

I have an existing oak floor in great room. I have already been convinced to match oak if I want to do my three bedrooms. My question is, can I combine 3 1/4 and 5 inch planks in my 20 x 20 master bedroom, or should I stick ro the 3 1/4 inch in all three bedrooms?
