so a newbie hand tool question. does wear matter for an hobby woodworker?

it makes sense to me that a full time woodworker, flattening boards 8hrs a day for years would want the hardest most stable wood no mater the cost due to being paid.

but if you doing 8-16 hrs a week, will it matter?

i have several old planes in the rehab process and desire to make a few of my own. so i'm curious about this factor. i need to buy some wood soon.

TIA,
Joe P
