i have always been curious which woods were the strongest in comparison. I found this interesting chart with all the laboratory testing for each type of wood

There's similar studies and the published results vary a little. Although probably fairly accurate these are lab conditions.

I noticed some glaring omissions of some species. Still a fun read for us woodies.
