Hello - I have about 1,000 board feet of beautiful rough sawn 5/4 red oak. We are putting solid pine doors in our new construction house. I was thinking of trimming the whole house with the red oak that I have been drying for a few years now. I'm concerned about how the look of the oak trim will be around the pine doors and jams. Does anyone have any experience with this? Is there a certain shade of stain I can use on the pine and the oak than would make them best complement eachother? On a side note, all the flooring will be random width T&G clear Ash. Thanks in advance for your help & suggestions.

If you don't mind the differnce in grain pattern you should be able to find a stain that will look good on both or you may have to use two different stains. Go to a paint store and they will be able to put some stain on both types of wood so you can compare how it will look.
