I built this yacht ladder a couple months back for a customer in Seattle.
It is made of phillippine mahogany. Stained with antique cherry water base from Rockler, very nice high pigment stuff. I finished it with a sprayed laquer.

It was 10 6” long and 22” wide to fit the space. I was given a very short notice to get it fabricated and installed.

Thanks for looking

Patrick

What a fine job and nice wood to play with.
The stain seems to give it a wonderful glow, is the Phillipine mahogany a more light color than ‘normaly’?
Best thoughts,

Eddie – Thanks, it was a big job and to finish in such short notice, I had a few 18 hour days into it. The customer was very happy.

Mads – Hello good to see you. The Phillipine Mahogany is a lighter shade than African and Hondouran. It is also a little softer and more pourous in my experience. It got the job done at an economical price.
