Materials only affect the durability of items, with salt being the weakest material and steel being the strongest. In swords and tools, the material does not affect the damage dealt to a player when attacking. This means that, if someone has the same sort of sword as you made of a different metal, you are not at an advantage or at a disadvantage.
Wood types are cosmetic and do not affect anything but the appearance.
