i had 6 mahogany chunks for lack of a better description. i was told they were african crotch mahogany from a near by wood working store. i had four of hem milled to 5/4 pieces and 8/4 pieces. i still have two chunks left. they measure roughly 48×15x10. i had thought about selling them but at the same time keeping them for down the road projects. i could use the room in my shop plus the money to buy some new equipment. but at the same time they arent hurting me by keeping them. if anyone has any thoughts on this i would like to hear them.

If you have a lathe, turn some pretty bowls or vases. This is the best kind of wood to turn and your projects will come out fantastic. If you don’t have a lathe now but plan to get one later, hang on to this piece but if you do not, make something pretty out of it.

I’ve been wanting to carve some Easter Island moais or something tiki for a while now, but that wood is probably a bit too precious for something like that.
