I am embarking on a daunting chest-of-drawers project that will be made from mahogany. One problem before I can even start making dust: the only brick-and-mortar place I have found mahogany (any variety) is at Woodcraft or Rockler, which never seem to have enough on hand. So I’ve begun looking online…and am lost.
Bell Forest Products (www.bellforestproducts.com) was an early contender, but they don’t have sizable “project packs” for mahogany.
Has anyone tried www.hardwoodtogo.com? Their “PROPacks” seem like they may fit the bill, but I haven’t found much feedback on them.
Any other vendors or suggestions?
I would love to buy local, but my day job and other constraints have me looking online, despite its obvious disadvantages. My shopping list includes some 8/4 for the legs, 5/4 for the top and mostly 4/4 for the drawer stock and panels.
Thanks – Brian
