    What type of wood do you have the most experience in crafting/using?







    *Rules*
    There is no minimum post requirement,

    In my life on all projects dealing with wood, probably Douglas Fir. In woodturning, probably Black Walnut. Chuck

    For me it's probably a 3 way tie between walnut, oak, and maple. Cherry and ash would follow behind that but ash is getting pretty scarce in Michigan now. What ash you do find in the state is usually been dead for a long time and full of powder post Beatles.

    Cuban Mahogany. @Mike1950 what you work with never counts as plain ole anything. It is properly referred to as some of the mos tgorgeous wood on the planet.

    As far as crafting I'd say maple. As far as using I'm going with oak as in all the cabs and built in's I done over the years. Now as far as mantles we build most of them out of mdf. Lol
