I find it difficult to come up with a single answer…there are so many different types of wood in the world and I am trying to use as many as I possibly can get my hands on..

Some woods are easier to work with but some woods just look nicer. I have always found cherry, walnut, maple, mahogany, teak, padauk and numerous others are easily worked, shaped and sanded. Some woods such as Zebrawood and Wenge, plus others splinter easily…I have my share of splinters to backup this.
Some woods are harder to work but really take a great finish while some work nicely but need alot of pores filled before applying a finish.
