Yes white and red pine. Holds up well to the elements, and is soft. White pine is nicer then red, lighter to lug around, and seems softer.
Balsam and spruce etc, sucks, its so full of sap, its like getting a shower all over your legs and body while carving it.
Cedar is nice as well, but not as much of that around here thats a decent size. Plus I get all my wood for free for the most part
Surprised my wife hasn't said anything out the amount of wood growing in my driveway LOL (the dolly is 4', most the logs are around 4-6')
