I have recently been introduced to wooden handplanes by Kordurory.tv and I'm pretty interested in making them. I have shaped two so far, one out of an old skateboard deck and one out of white pine. My question is, what woods, other than paulowina are good for making handplanes. I'm talking about woods that don't soak up water like pine would if not sealed properly. I plan to get some paulowina soon, but I have come across some poplar and I have some white pine planks that I would like to shape some handplanes out of.
