i had to pick one of the hardest ones to start out with ,my old table saw and the rest of my tools are the happy home owner version . had to use a lot of what my old boss used to cal pixie dust [fine saw dust] LOL. the wood is red ceder, cherry, boat ark [horse apple] some people call it ,which sould have been called iron wood.all and all my wife loves it so i guess it turned out all right.
