    I'm making a wooden bridge, and I'm thinking of using bubinga or purpleheart. I've never made a bridge before and I'm wondering, which wood would be best? Unfortunately I don't have access to ebony.

    I've used purpleheart for wooden bridges and have been very happy with it. Not sure about bubinga. I think most tight grained and dense woods would be ok for a bridge.
