    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 tried a house vac once for a dust collector. It was prone to clogging the lines and when I tried to put a cyclone can on it the vacuum collapsed the garbage can.

                        I found this pattern in Steves catalog and freehanded a vase form. This one may appeal to the folks that bought the butterfly vase.

                        Sorry took so long to answer. The brown vase I added butterfly instead of doing wood burning. Wanted to keep them so they would appeal to several people. I sold all of them to a flower shop....
