Today I scored a piece of mahogany from a long-time wood worker who had collected about 1,000 bf of wood and had decided to retire and move out of state. This piece is 15+" wide x 60" long of 5/4 stock. It is clear, straight grained and without knots, still with the saw marks on it. He said he bought it about 25 years ago. I took my ROS to a corner so you can see the grain. It looks like a "true" mahogany to me but I'd like some others opinions.
