Another interesting instrument: you seem to work pretty fast!

Is idigdo a good wood with which to work ( planing, sanding gluing...)? I buy timber offcuts on Ebay and often see it for sale. Its also a plain looking wood. I recently bought some yellow Balau but have yet to try it. I thought I might use it for necks. I've used sapele, utile and meranti previously, though all are a little on the heavy side.

Some of these hardwoods seem to be used mainly for decking.

Idigbo is good for sanding and gluing. One thing it's not so easy to use for is bending.
