I use Texas Ebony, Mesquite, Manzanita, Ironwood, Maple, Black Walnut, Cherry, Osage Orange to name a few that are domestic. Some of these are rare, others common, but I tend to use the fancier, luthier quality for my high end work. The best source for unique woods are to find the guys who salvage fallen trees after storms or from being cut down from being diseased or just unwanted trees. This helps out the guy who is a true wood lover and who is trying to make some $$ by being resourceful. It also helps keep this wood from going to the dump or becoming mulch.
