I need to rip some custom sized molding on my table saw. Which is the best kind of lumber to use? I imagine plain 1x Spruce-pine-fir (SPF) is not the best choice.
If you're in the Pacific Northwest, Hemlock is the wood of choice for soft-wood molding. Pine would have to be clear (knot-free) and fine-grain Douglas Fir is expensive and tougher on the shaper blades.
