Beech. It’s strong and hard and easy to cut with any tools and for me the warmest. Steamed beech has wonderful color as well. Beech can move quite a lot though. That’s why I do measure moisture content.
Red willow for its incredible burls. (Tomorrow I’ll post some pictures.)
Larch for durability and for its scent.
I like black locust for its beauty and hardness but it’s not easy to work with.
And what is yours?
