Nick Ferry’s page:

I will be discussing the pros and cons of various exotic species. Including, cocobolo, lignum vitae, ebony, african blackwood, padauk, purple heart, and many many more. I will show samples live on air, both raw boards and finished pieces. I will also talk safety regarding exotics, what is toxic and hazardous along with what precautions should be taken.

I will discuss in depth the trees of the rosewood family and just what makes them so beautiful & unique.

Topics covered will be
tree range, hardness, density, traditional uses, local uses, and uses by the woodworker.

I will cover where to buy them, how much they cost, and what they are best used for.

Detailed discussion on how best to do woodworking with them, from initial milling, to cutting, jointing, planing, and assembly. Also I will discuss how to join the exotics from best joinery methods to adhesives needed and surface preparation.

Finally I will discuss how to finish them, covering everything from sanding & surface prep to the type of products that work best and last the longest. I will also talk about how to bring out the color for maximum beauty and how to keep it for as long as possible.

Then, I will answer questions for as long as everyone has them. and we can chat on air for a bit too.
