wood hardness

All this talk about soft hardwoods and which woods are best for carving got me curious.  I came across a couple of websites that depict types of wood by something called the "Janka" scale.  The Janka scale is used to categorize a type of wood by its hardness.

Here are two websites:  One lists hardness alphabetically.  The other lists by its degree of hardness.
