In 1.3 we got new types of wood that correspond to the log they come from, but only 3 blocks are actually those colors: the normal blocks, slabs, and stairs. Lets add more.
All of these are for aesthetics.
Each idea is rated by a 5 star rating of their importance of being added.

There could be two ways that crafting works.
IDEA 1: The output of the crafted item will be based on which wood type is most used. If there is a tie between the items, the output item will be oak type.
IDEA 2: By Ouatcheur, Crafting the items will of course, be the exact same, but trying to crafting something will multiple colors will give you the color that is used the most in the ingredients. In case of a tie, the 'winning' color will always be the one from the ingredient that has the smallest Block-ID (or damage value, for tied-in-number ingredients that all have the same smallest Block-ID).
To me, the way buttons mixed into the block they're made of was a great hidden redstone advantage. Adding multicolored buttons won't be too much, just a way so you can hide buttons on multiple wood types.
The same reason behind the buttons, plates can be hidden to the block they're made of, plus can be used for tables.
Multicolred sticks would open up new available colored blocks. The sticks, however, will not create multicolored tools.
One problem though is that the texture of the current sticks is the same color scheme as the spruce planks, so either the Oak sticks will have a new color, or the Spruce sticks will be darker than their block color scheme.
Multicolored Doors, Fence Gates and TrapDoors
If anything, doors appear on every house, and it would be nice for the doors to match colors of their houses. Trapdoors, and fence gates too could match multicolored fences and the color of houses.
Fences gates will also have their type depended normal, so different sticks or planks will be no different.
A commonly suggested idea, obviously since fences are used a lot. They match many aesthetic perspectives for biomes.
Multicolored Chests and Trapped Chests
What belongs in every house and is needed by every Minecrafter? Yes it's chests you dummy.
Why not? Their wood colored, great decor, and they don't have any current aesthetic advantages.
This would also include Trapped Chests. No better way to make a trap insuspicious than disguising it as a regular looking chest.
As a full block itself, bookshelves should've been color compatible in the first place.
Suggested by Fortanono.
Color signs add an aesthetically appeasing decoration so you can make letters mix into the background, and make those fancy couches.
Also, due to how dark Spruce and Dark Oak is, the text for them will be automatically colored white to make them easy to read.
Suggested by numerous souls.
Color ladders makes your wood colored house more appeasing, blinding into a block's background, and adding more decoration options.
Crafting tables are largely composed of the wood texture, making them stick out like a sore thumb. Although not having large decorative uses, it can make houses more symmetrical.
If they ever implement wool color based beds, this could go along with it, quintupling the possible mixes. Of course that would also make a complete mess of inventory... so this probably shouldn't and won't be added.
Believe it or not, this revolutionary redstone objects are decorational as well. They can be used as fancy tables so multicolors could help you with your interior, plus, can help you hide the pistons with the wood background.

Multicolored JukeBoxes and NoteBlocks
Although they're largley different from wood textures, they can pimp up your houses. Note blocks can have their song sections color-coded to keep your songs organized.
I maybe abandon this idea. There's a question in the poll if you want to support it staying or leaving.

Multicolored Item Frames
It's a bit unfair that your stuck with the birch wood for your item frames. Like signs, the multicolored item frames could mix into their backgrounds, making it more appeasing.
Whats a better way of sprucing up (pun intended) your docks than having boats of different colors? Better yet, you could have boat races with different colors!
When these boats crash they will drop planks and sticks according to their type.
I mocked up some photos for what the blocks might actually look like. I wasn't able to take pictures of placed bookshelf blocks because the side textures messed up.
Dark Oak Items
There is also a mod containing the fences and pressureplates that someone has brought to me.
