I’m looking for some East India Mahogany. Pieces big enough for plane tote repairs and such. If anyone has some scraps they would be willing to part with, PM me what you’d want for what ever you have.

thanks….....

a little bit more research and I find this East Indian Mahogany is also called Andaman Padauk and Andaman Redwood.

I’ve used some to repair. I haven’t made a whole tote from it yet.
