Hardwoods for Toy and Automata Making

Here's a link to a brief guide to American hardwoods. I've used many of these woods in my automata. The Birthing Engine box was made of Alder. In my other automata I have used Cherry in one way or another -- boxes and parts. Cherry is stiff and strong, though it's fairly easy to burn.
