Wood choice for gratings
« on: November 26, 2010, 08:32:30 AM »

The current project calls for a lot of wood gratings which I intend to make myself. I note that commercially available wooden gratings are usually walnut and I have also seen recommendations for bass.

Before going to the expense of buying the wood, can anyone confirm that walnut/bass are the best woods to use from the point of easy machining without splintering or are their better choices?
