          Simply beautiful work!! So much detail. Did you do the bar chairs as well?
          I put it all back together better than before. There\'s lots of leftover parts.

              I can't say that style is really what I like but the work looks amazing. I love mahogany.

              I just bought several very fine mahogany 2X8X12's for a project at well over a hundred a pop. I dont even want to imagine how much that much lumber cost.

                When I was in the phillipines, mahogany cost 10 cents a board ft.

                    There is a type of mahogany called phillipine mahogany, which is actually a collection of several types of wood that have a resemblance to mahogany but don't actually belong to the mahogany family and are of much lower quality. I'm guessing thats probably what that was since the "real" mahoganies are significantly more expensive. Phillipine mahogany is very easy to find and very inexpensive. Many things sold as mahogany which are suspiciously cheap are actually made of that.

                      Interesting, is this wood from the Phillipines or is that just the name given to that particular group?

                        Nice work, Popintraining. The columns, what did you make them from? Did you set up shop in the basement, or did you build most from another shop, then did installation? Great skills, wish more people could afford to have work like that done in their homes. Thanks for sharing your pictures......Mark

                          The term is now pretty generic and includes both types. Now anything that is "fake" mahogany gets lumped into the phillipine category, even if it isn't actually from there. The genuine mahogany species are usually from south america, caribbean, and african regions.
