I searched the forum for some information about different types of wood but I have found very little. I'm curious as a consumer what are the pros and cons of some woods especially traditional Japanese like magnolia and ichii.

Hardwoods like rosewood, wenge, bubinga I understand are pretty water resistant, and also stabilized woods I get but for magnolia and ichii I found very little information.

Even the spelling is a mystery is it iichi or ichii ?
