    It all depends on how you want it to look.
    Green oak is near enough fresh from the tree, still with high moisture content.

    I normally use Keruing, which is a nice light colour when first machined, but does darken up a little with age, and varnish of course.
    Ash would look nice, good grain to it, and nice figuring.
    I wouldn't go with planks too wide, it will not look right, 5" or so would be good.

    If you need more advice, (or machining) let me know, I'm not too far away

    Nip to B&Q select a nice sheet of 8x4 birch ply and ask the nice fella at the cutting saw to chop it up to your requirements. youll see that the planks in the bed are not all the same size.. ( width ) measure them up and go to the shop armen with the measurements.. say the righr things and there pretty helpfull if not I think its 2 per cut after the first 2 cuts .. From memory a full 8X4 is about 30 thats good quality birch ply no the cheap ****e you use for oarding windas...
