Quote:PRICE. Probably the best wood considering these parameters is Red Oak. It's very hard, easy to work and relatively inexpensive. As an example, Red Oak can be purchased almost anyplace that sells hardwoods and usually (depending on where you live) for about $3.00/ board foot. Compare this with some of the exotic woods, which are not readily available and will cost up to $20 or more per board foot.
