I think I am dealing with one tree here, cut dried & banded together. All with mixed end grain direction. I bought from a guy in N.C. that claims he got it from a US Customs auction. Milled smooth and is very dry. My wife wants perfectly smooth door fronts. Easier to care for. So I figure bread board ends are the way to go. With mahogany the golden rays need to line up so I the less ripping the better. But cupping could destroy the whole project…
