Hi all,
I'm considering doing a large kitchen project in African Mahogany quarter sawn. I have never worked with the wood before and am looking for any tricks to its milling. I've purchased a few board ft and already see that when ripping one straight board turns into two cricked boards. I have access to most milling equipment and would purchase the wood in 4/4 hit and miss.

Also does anyone knows of a supply of Honduras Mahogany anywhere close to the Pacific Northwest or even on the west coast. My project requires 300-350 BF.

Thanks, Stew

Hi Stuart,

Welcome to the Router forums.

I hope we can make your woodworking more enjoyable.
Look forward to seeing some projects from your shop.

Maybe the wood was not dried properly, but then you do get that twisted board out of the same batch of stock now and then.

Hope you find a supplier for the Honduras Mahogany with little trouble. Maybe someone here can help.

Work safe, Have fun, Cut some wood,
Mike
