I got over to the lumber store to look at some mahogany last Thursday. Friday we had the storm of the century here in Northern California. Knocked down my lemon tree and a good chunk of fence in the back yard so I got diverted from this project cleaning up stuff. I did get some time to make a rendering of how to use the boards I am going to get tomorrow. I took the components of my sketchup model and layed them out on some 10” x 8’ boards. Doing this, I got to think out the way the grain will be.
Looks like I will need about 30 bd ft to do two of these. The 8/4 Mahogany for the legs is kinda pricey since it comes in 12’ lengths. I am trying to see if I can get them to sell me half of one, otherwise, I think I will use it eventually.
