    Default African Mahogany

    I live in Townsville and as you can imagine I have access to a lot (tons) of African Mahogany and Mango and I was wondering.
    1: Is it (African Mahogany) easy to work with for general furniture making (i.e.: turning, routing sanding ect).
    2: What is the best way to dry it out?
    Thanks for your help

    I cut alot of it for a company in Kununurra intended for flooring. Very easy to cut but it moves like an SOB. It air dries quickly but put alot of weight on your stacks
