What do I make from a piece of Mahogany?

Postby Obrian » Wed Apr 06, 2016 7:12 am

Just received a piece of Mahogany 5” by 12” by 86” from a friend who is closing his workshop. I am undecided on what to make from it. Any ideas?

Use it to make tops and bottoms for trinket boxes and jewellery. Mahogany is really great in this.

If you want a cabinet, then cut it into veneer. Depending with the equipment that you will use, you can cut veneer into any thickness.

I have a fire-place that requires a Mantle. Mind giving it to me?

You can make lots of things from it for example a table to. Just use a band saw and a planer to cut and then finish it about 3 ten inch wide boards.

Why the hurry? Some day an opportunity will present itself. You might come across a project which will require such kind of a treasure. Do not waste it now. Save it.

If it were long enough, i would have advised you to make a pool cue out of it..
