Maple, especially curly. Cherry, especially with gum streaks, and the little irregularities. Walnut, all brown please. Pretty much in that order, unless the project just tells me it needs another wood, or maybe a few woods for contrast.

All 3 of them are very easy to work with, tool wise. The curly maple needs some care in final prep, and finishing, but the trouble is worth the effort in what it brings to the end project.
