four feet long…30” wide.1 1/2 thick…Weighs about 40 lbs.Hand planed for 4 hours and then took it to a freinds cabinet shop and ran it 20 times on both sides through a 50” sander.I’m used to working with soft cypress..Mahogany is HARD !!
Will start on the legs soon,Doing the design on google sketchup right now.

Thanks for the post – I’m about to put on some breadboards myself on some butcher blocks , so it’s always nice to see another view of what it looks like on the inside.

so you think mahogany is hard…. wait till you work with rock maple…. YIKES.
