Buddy, western red cedar has good moderate density at about 21 lbs/cu ft. The only problem is contains red oil that can bleed through your finish unless you prime it with a solvent based primer. Can't comment about store bought screw eyes because I hand wind my own from .041" soft ss wire. You can custom size them to your crankbait, which I like to do.
