Solid Mahogany. 36 pieces (3 layers) laminated together in a brick laid pattern to add strength. Window started off as 3 mitered octagons stacked together with seams staggered. Next the circle is band-sawn into the circle shape of the window but slightly bigger. Last the circle is put on a lathe and turned to a perfect circle leaving a beautiful profile shaped into the front and a rabbet for the glass to be inserted.
