Here's the straight and narrow of it; there is no hardwood anywhere near me. Lots of pine, lots of cedar, and that's it. I am not driving 150 miles to Arkansas on a gamble just to see worm eaten hardwood letovers. So, what would happen if I used pine or cedar? Would it split down to the comb and cost me an eye? Would it tear the fabric of reality and invert the universe? Or would it just ding up real easy and not look very nice at all?
