    Mahogany

    A beautiful dark wood with a reddish color and fine grain, the majority of mahogany on the market today is taken illegally from rainforests in Brazil and Bolivia. Outlaw timber companies invade indigenous reserves, park and nature preserves destroying not only the fragile forests, but the homelands of indigenous tribal peoples. Tree poachers punch new roads into pristine forests, cut valuable trees, transport the wood to middlemen and exporters who in turn sell it to importers in the U.S., Europe and Japan. The U.S. is the world’s leading importer of mahogany.

    Smaller volumes of mahogany are imported from Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Belize and a few other Central and South American rainforest countries.

    The Brazilian intelligence agency has reported that 80% of logging in Brazil is illegal. Two agencies in Brazil have declared South American mahogany within Brazil (the largest part of its range) to be endangered.

    Carribean (true) mahogany is commercially extinct from its native areas in the West Indies.

    When we buy mahogany doors, paneling or furniture, we participate in driving forests, endangered species and human cultures into extinction.

    Ash.

    In the one-wood department, I'm leaning to teak - unless it's a special acacia.
    The search for inner peace continues...

    As this person I knew once said, " Ahh what a beautiful cut." Or, "I love the smell of fresh cut wood, beautiful."

    Every passing minute is another chance to turn it all around.

    I once buried myself under sixteen tons of concrete and steel to avoid ever seeing another man's nut sack.

    Wow. How board do you have to be to start a thread about wood, that's not about "wood"?
    When I was a boy of fourteen, my father was so ignorant I could hardly stand to have the old man around. But when I got to be twenty-one, I was astonished by how much he'd learned in seven years.” Mark Twain (apocryphal)
