Also, I like the idea of using wood grown closer to home, or at least on the same continent. I can’t say I’ve never used exotics, but I always have pangs of environmental guilt.

That’s why we give the specific gravity and percent shrinkage for each species listed. us. A wood’s specific gravity speaks to how hard, dense, and heavy it is. The higher a wood’s specific gravity, the tougher and stronger it is, basically. These numbers also mean that cherry and walnut are easier to work—by hand or machine—than white oak.
