Couple years ago I bought a bunch of lumber from a guy who worked at a high end millwork shop and had a bunch of nice mahogany, cherry etc. He was moving and had to get rid of it.

After loading the lumber he asked if I was interested in some veneer. $40 for the whole lot.

14 pcs. Does anyone know what kind of wood this is:

Crotch mahogany: 6 pcs 14×20

Mahone 6 pcs 5×36

Burl walnut 11 pcs 6×6

-- Everything is a prototype thats why its one of a kind!!
