I  think of myself as an artist using wood for expression rather than as a fine woodworker.

Old wood, previously used and seasoned, patinated is preferable.
Try to keep evidence of age and previous use. 
Existing holes and knots are especially interesting. 
They become the eyes and ears of the new work.
Like it when a given work is from one source, say a broken up desk.
