    I've voted Other because the vast majority of my compound scrolling has been with ash. However, I've also tickled some blocks of pine and oak, so I'm not averse to using other woods.

      I wish I could click on more than one.
      I use maonly poplar but I have used maple, walnut, and teak.
      I have also used pine and cedar but didn't care for either.

          I use what ever is in the cut off bin that is the right size. I try to avoid the real hard woods as I have a problem with burning when using them for compounds.

              Mostly cherry & mahogany. Have tons of problems with hard woods and just get discouraged!

                I chose other, because I used many of those listed as well as others. Dale

                    One of the other reasons I like poplar is it is easy to come by. You can get square poplar dowels at HomeDepot, or even Canadian Tire (more than just tires)

                      Since all of the compound projects I have done so far are painted, I have used 3/4" MDF mostly and some poplar.

                        I checked out www.ULine.com We used them years ago at the company I used to work at, and they were really reputable to work with. They have machines, guns, bags, and film. I just don't really know what works best, as well as if there is a really great priced to buy from. To date I've been a frugal...

                        Well, I used to get my shrink wrap rolls from AC Moore, and just used the last roll😟. I use a heat gun but lately and only shrink the Sealife puzzles to keep the pieces in place. I only use it on puzzles because of my display board otherwise I would have broken pieces all over the place. Also easier...

                        We did. I only went $40 over budget. I got a 73” x 12” x 3/4” curly cherry for $55. Just needs to be run through the sander and cut to size. It’s a pinkish cherry and is so pretty. A piece of deep red redwood, 2 pieces of walnut each about 12” wide. Good haul.
