practise woods

Recommended Posts

what cheap woods would you recommend i use to practise making bodys so i dont waste expensive wood?

id like it to behave like mahogany or other similar woods. obviously the tone it produces isnt really important, i just want something that i can experiement with and not worry about destroying it.

basswood can be kinda soft though... so you might be able to "wing" things with it that alder ( a bit harder wood) may not allow.... like deep router passes... etc... alder is a good choice.... poplar is good too..
