Title: Source for Extra-Wide Crotch Mahogany
Post by: Dale Ausherman on March 14, 2014, 10:22:56 AM
A fellow woodworker I met at the 2014 Winterthur Furniture Forum seeks extra wide crotch Mahogany, ideally 24 - 30 inch wide, and asked that I check SAPFM for sources. He lives in MA.

Thank you for whatever you may suggest.

I saw 2 pieces that size for sale once, and bought them, they were backers from a veneer company from the 50's.  I've never seen any for sale before or since. So he'll probably have to use veneer.

I have about a dozen pieces of Honduran that are up to 14" wide, I also found those from veneer companies. So he could try calling some of them, but I wouldn't hold out much hope.
