I am new to wood working. I bought the oak park spacer fences for making box joints. So far I just have my router screwed on the bottom of a piece of melamine for a router table. So far I have only used 1 x 6 pine to make 2 boxes with only a little tear out because my backing block was not tall enough. I am wondering what woods would be good for for a biginner. I would also like recomendations on plywoods for boxes as I would like to make a larger box later on. Thanks in advance.
