Topic tags/keywords: question

I have been building bead boxes for the current rage: pandora,troll & other brands of bead bracelets, necklaces etc. Past choices for wood have been cherry, bubinga, & walnut. I now have a customer who wants one out of Mango wood. I have been looking for a source and am finding it difficult. Does anyone out there have a good source for Mango?
Tnx

Can’t help with the wood source, but I do like your box and the design. Thanks for sharing that.

Very nicely done. I’d just keep searching out there in cyber-space for a Mango source. Looks like a beautiful wood

That box isn’t made form mango, is it? I think mango lumber is lighter/yellowish in color.

Bigfootphil, No, that box is cherry. you’re right mango is lighter and more yellowish brown in color.
Don’t know where I can come up with some do you?
