Which wood for worktop

Hi guys,

I'm moving to a new studio and need to build a desk to work on I got a couple of carpenters who will do it for me on site, I was hoping someone can give an idea re which wood is best to get.

I was thinking of getting solid wood Beech 40mm thick. or Oak block style matt 38 mm thick.

Does it matter for reflections etc ? is there a wood that's 'less' reflective/resonating or it doesn't really matter ?

Cheers

Shouldn't matter for reflections... We have integrated rooms with desks and consoles of every type of wood... I do highly recommend that you build a desk out of hardwood so you can write on it and "use it" so it doesn't get destroyed.

Just use mdf it's easy to use great to paint as well unless you are looking for a wood finish, I think if your monitors are on proper stands its not much of a problem as long as its solid and not glass wood is wood really
