Ash would be another choice. Depending on where you live, it can be easy to get a lot of it for free. The wood borer has taken it's toll here in the Midwest. A friend had 13 trees cut down in their yard. (BIG ones!) I looked through the piles of logs and picked out some pieces that I think will have some interesting features. I'll find out once it's completely dried out.

I have my eye on one that has lots of burl on it. Working on getting permission to cut it down to help the landowner out. Of course I'll go one further and take the wood away as well! :-)
