It is hard to beat EIR for ease of building. It is hard to break, unlikely to scorch, dark enough to use fill to mask errors, and readily available in properly cut sets. Get the plainest straightest grained material you can, which it virtually all is. Yes, Myrtle bends more easily, but as long as you stay under .085 EIR is unlikely to be much trouble. There is a reason why you see so much EIR, and itís not because it sounds like BRW.
