I'm looking for medium-hard wood to make a small table.Torx":do8zxv0b said:What are you looking for, hardwoods, panels?
The various mahoganoids are hard to beat for comparative ease of working. But I'd avoid sapele - the interlocking ribbon grain can be hard work to plane and scrape smooth.Silly_Billy":flehbyxv said:I'm looking for medium-hard wood to make a small table.Torx":flehbyxv said:What are you looking for, hardwoods, panels?
Also, I'd welcome advice about suitable woods for a table made using only hands tools.
I'm a beginner and made my last table from oak. But I only possess hand tools and oak was hard work! It seemed like I spent as much time sharpening as woodworking While I was pleased with the end result, this time I'd like to use a wood that's easier to work with.
