I need to create a dynamic product catalog for a small online business and wanted to know how I would use Silverstripe to create it?
I am selling custom made wood trim.

-I have 5 varietals: oak, walnut, mahogany, cherry and birch
-available in in 2", 3", 4" and 5" widths.
-12 different designs

Is there a Silverstripe module/function that would give a customer the ability to narrow down a product view by any oak design in 3" widths or all designs in walnut, etc.

I have created a basic site with dreamweaver and I am realizing I need to find an easier method for customer navigation and site administration rather than managing static web pages as my company grows.

I think the better is to use your own dataobjects, and page types for such a situation. I think you can do this but doing some little customizations to the SiteTree :)
