Another wood-related question: These are some woods I found recently in a local store (sold as hardwood flooring ) : Merbau, Kempas, Cumaru, Cunila, Ulin, Keruing. I might use some of these in a couple of projects, as they are easily obtainable and relatively cheap. I've found some info about some of them, most of them seem stable enough to be used in lutherie, some of them are quite hard and wear-resistant, so they could be used as fingerboards. I'm curious if anyone has used any of these woods - what's your opinion about their sonic properties, workability etc. Btw. I've found out that Cumaru is also known as Brazilian Oak, which sometimes is used for neck laminates, afaik.
