    se me esta haciendo difícil seguirlos puesto que no domino el inglés. Las maderas trabajables mencionadas en sus comentarios no son comunes de conseguir aquí en mi zona de habitación.

      You will need to test some of the woods in your area, but basswood is sometimes called Linden (Europe) or Lime (England) also. Mahogany also is good.
