I'm sorry. I know you are right, but sometimes I just don't think to do that. I do have tons of photos and videos of some of my projects, especially the lathe turning. I may show more of those some time..

I was concerned about that, but My thought was that if all the grains meet at 45 degree angles, and no one piece is overly large, that there might be enough "give" in the wood to accommodate the expansion and contraction. Also I think the Honduras mahogany may be a little more stable and forgiving than some of our local hardwoods here in Wisconsin.

So far no problems, except that the Joints in the outer frame rail show signs of stress during humid summer months due to greater expansion of the large center panel.

It's been a number of years, and I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

That's a lot of time effort, money and know how you have put into it...... well worth the quality of cut lumber. Congratulations!
