Favorite and least favorite wood, fragrance-wise

Dave Winters, Steamboat Springs, CO
>Here's a good one: What's your favorite and least favorite wood to turn, as far as the smell? I love the smell of the rosewoods when I'm turning. And I keep a billet of Juniper around to peel some shavings with a skew if I know clients are coming round to the shop.

Least favorite has to be wet Cottonwood. My wife makes me change clothes in the mud room before she'll let me in the house when I'm roughing Cottonwood blanks.
