Default Wood choice thoughts

I'm making several small boxes (3" x 4" x 5/8") and I want to use a nice 1/8 inch hardwood. I've already found some types difficult to work with. For instance, I found Padauk to be very attactive and quite hard, but really messy and seems to get all over the place when I'm cutting. It also seems to chip a little. I like mahogany, but it seems a bit soft. I would love to find a tight grain, not too soft, not too hard, that would be well suited for my little box project.
