I'm stripping a late model Ansco 5A studio 8x10, it's beech and basswood. I guess that's why it cost 2x the mahogany and brass version.
Don't forget: teak, black ash, bloodwood, canarywood, yellowheart, koa, pacific yew, et al. I'm very sure it's a plank-by-plank choice.
Good luck with it, please post some photos when done.
