Whats your favorite wood to work?
I am building some frames for my moms art as a Christmas gift. Yesterday I was working some Cherry, Walnut, and Basswood. It dawned on me as I took all three of these through the entire stage of milling all the way to the finished product. I enjoy working Walnut more than any other wood. Its not too hard but not too soft. With good sharp blades it looks mirror smooth through milling and cutting. The color is instant gratification and easy to finish. Don't get me wrong all the wood I usually work have their pluses and minuses, but for me, as of yesterday, Walnut is my favorite and has very few minuses. Whats yours and why?
