Is the right wood type to use, believe me! Rough grain as you describe it- rough edges - is not the issue. Straight grain throughout and no "runouts" is the real challenge.

A 2"x6" is going to be cut down to a 3.5" width, so you can afford lots of crap on the sides that will be cut off anyway.

I found my WRC at a lumberyard that was carrying it for floor boards, so laminating up two 5/8" thick 4" wide boards worked like a charm, using Titebong III glue. Much less to carve and cut off in the end. Saved work and worked beautifully.
