Episode 36 – Least Favorite & Favorite Woods

~IMG_4307In this episode of 360 with 360WoodWorking, the guys are joined by Ron Herman to discuss woods that are their favorite and least favorite. If you know anything about Chuck and Glen, you may know what wood they like best. And Ron is happy to talk about his favorite species. I think the real interest is that all three of these guys agree on their least favorite wood – and Ron shares many facts about this poor wood. Plus, you have to listen close to hear what Chuck thinks is the better use it

Join the guys twice each week for six lively minutes of discussion on everything from tools to techniques to wood selection (and more). Chuck & Glen, and sometimes a surprise guest, all have their own opinions. Sometimes they agree and sometimes they don’t, but the conversation is always information packed and lots of fun.

  1. You two delinquents rubbed off on me! Tiger Maple is the only way to go. It’s sooo easy to carve right Chuck

    Have you guys been affected by the Thousand Cankers Disease there in the (Mid West)?

    Since Pennsylvania enacted a Quarintine it’s getting harder and harder to find and I won’t discuss the pricing increase.

    Buy it while you can

    1. Joey C,
      I haven’t noticed price increases. It’s been a while since I’ve bought hardwoods – I’ve been using up inventory. I guess I’ll be in for a scare when that time comes.

  2. I’ve been using red oak because I got a lot for free, but recently made a few projects with Florida Cherry, and I think I’m hooked.
    (Planing a few bank robberies to restock racks…..) 🙂

  3. When I started this thing a couple of years ago red oak was the only way to go because my wife loved it. My first real project was a oak corner cabinet. I recently said no more and made our new bed out of cherry. Guess who now has to make a new corner cabinet out of cherry?
