billsterl Posted November 2, 2005 Report Share Posted November 2, 2005 Hi- I have done alot of woodworking over the last thirty years but I don't know much about tone woods. I know the common used woods alder, swamp ash, and basswood. But what about other softer hardwoods like Butternut and Walnut? Is white ash good? I see some places selling African mahogany and other selling Honderan (sp?).Which is the better of the two? Is solid Maple and Cherry to bright? I have a beautiful thick Butternut plank I have had for twenty years waiting for a project I would like to use in a tele body. Has anyone use birch red or white? I have a 3" plank of red birch also. Is oak ever used? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
