A fella gave me a bunch of mahogany today. Most of it was 2×2, 2×3, and 2×6 around 4 to 6 feet long. But the real goody was about 10’ of 6” Chacago Bar Rail. All Honduran Mahogany.

Nice Score! Watch out for the dust when you’re working that, though. It gives me sinus trouble…alternating runny and stuffed up nose. But if that’s a problem, you could always send it my way…;-)
