The man to ask is @se7enthdevil Steve Earis.  But he doesn't come on here much any more - more's the pity.  Try those details in Arsebook, his main stomping ground I believe

sadly i can't use Arbtalk with my ancient computer. it stopped working around xmas and just says a secure connection can't be found or something similar.

happy for you to send me a sample of you want me to make sure.

 

Hi Steve. Thanks for looking into this and I'll send a sample. It's good looking timber regardless of whether it's a genuine mahogany or a related species and I'm looking forwards to using it, hopefully over the next couple of years or so.

sample received and it is a Khaya genus mahogany.

Cheers Steve and really looking forwards to seeing the bowl you make with the 12" x 12" x 1 3/4" sample.

Two pictures of the bowl made by Steve using the wood sample I sent to him. Very pleased with it and glad I asked him if he would be able to make it for me.
