Mahogany is one of the finest furniture woods, but before you go out and buy it, there's a lot you need to know. (Fine Woodworking, issue # 207). Learn the difference between Cuban mahogany, the Honduras variety, and the African woods -- sapele, sipo, and khaya. Find out which one is appropriate for your next project, which are the least expensive, and where to find them.
