I ran across an ad on CL for Mahogany from a guy near me. Talked to him and the wood turned out to be pometia pinnata which, per google, is more commonly called Taun. I’m just looking for some opinions/experiences working with it. Most of what I’m finding online is flooring related which isn’t very helpful, but it appears to be used as a more cost effective option to Brazilian cherry in that area.

Any additional info would be welcome.
Thanks

Tuan is a member of the Luan familt. It was genetically engineered in the University of the Philiphines a long while ago. It was developed to be a fast growing replacemrnt for the Luan they were harvesting. It does everything that Luan does.
