I received an early birthday present from a new friend up here in Cushman!
Quite a score really, now I have to figure out what to make of it.
Genuine Philippine Mahogany – 3 7/8” thick, 11 1/2” wide and 5’ long!

Oh yeah! Meet my 14 mo. old Lab/Pit Rocky!
He is a woodworker too! He can turn just about any wood into toothpicks! LOL

Nice score Dez and nice co-pilot. For me, I would resaw and use it to make boxes for gifts.

Just let it sit for awhile. It will let you know what to do. That is a nice score!
