The other day I enthusiastically bought some fancy wood since I was making small stuff and wanted to try out some other material. And then I promptly forgot what I bought.
The receipt appears:
—Figured Santos Mahogany (“Bee’s wings” I think)
—Mesquite (knew that)
Any tips for working with these beauties? I’ve already resawed them down to get bookmatched 1/2 inch boards…. The mahogany in particular seems a bit brittle. The mesquite is tough!
