Thumps up, very nicely done...

Two questions:

1. How important is the hardness of the wood? I'm thinking about building a saya for both my Kohetsu Gyuto and the Yoshihiki suji I recently picked up from a fellow German knife-nut. Since I don't own a ton of tools (belt sander), I thought about using balsa wood because it's cheap and easy to work with.

2. I guess most of the stability comes from the two outer layers, while the thickness of the middle one roughly matches the thickness of the spine at the heel of the blade, right?

Need not be very hard but it helps, I do mine in the slow-growth spruce. Attempts to align the blade as accurately as possible, so it does not rattle. Good equipment, band saw and a sanding disc. But it is possible to do by hand if time permits.
