the problem is none is available. So I would like some possible
recommendation for a similar type of wood .
The project involves wooden gears. So stability is important. Any suggestion
will be greatly appreciated.
Lot of options
Also look at Platymiscium species.
Apple is traditional for gears but there are some tricks to using it.
Mesquite is stable, hard, strong, pretty good across the board, and
available at reasonable prices but it has a relatively open grain structure
that might or might not affect the performance of whatever you're making.
Google "wood selector"--there are several online--and plug in "stable",
"hard" and whatever else you think you'll need and you'll find some good
