Location: France
Website:

So far, I have used European Oak, Alder, American Walnut, European Walnut, Beech and Ash.
I get these from friends or I buy them at lumberyards. (Not too far away from where I live, there is a region very well known for its walnut and a lumberyard which is an official supplier for Rolls Royce cars)
99% of the time, my finish consists in oil (sometimes mixed with varnish) and paste wax on the top.

I live in an apartment so I do all my ripping and thicknessing in a collective workshop and then do the joinery mostly with hand tools or router at home (on my balcony-workshop)
