I am about to build some kitchen cabinets with solid birch for the doors and trim, and birch ply for the carcases. In looking up birch I find 3 kinds listed. White (paper) birch, red birch, and yellow birch. What are the advantages/disadvantages of each.

Can somebody enlighten me further on this.

It is simply:

heartwood, sapwood or less stringent barely mostly sapwood on at least one face(red, white, yellow; respectively).
