Default Wood for Miniature Building

I'd really like to make some of my own furniture for my dolls house and was wondering what would be the best type of wood to use? Balsa wood just does not seem to fit the bill, so was wondering what other people use or recommend?

I'm looking at building large bookcases with ladders, kitchen table, beds etc and want a wood I can stain and paint. I am sat here looking at all the trees surrounding my home, but hubby thinks chopping a few down for me to build with is a little extreme

Keep smilin
