I would say maple. Could probably even use poplar.

Often it is based on what is available in your particular neck of the woods. You hear everyone talking about the eastern hardwoods—cherry, maple and walnut. These may not really be readily available in California. Or available at a price point you consider efficient.

Here is a link that might provide some guidance: linky

I am sure other Californian’s will start responding and you will have an abundance of information to sift through.
