We think mahogany is a super cool wood to build furniture with – it’s easy to work with, and it looks absolutely fabulous with a good wood finish. Especially an oil finish that gives the wood a bold, natural color.
So check out this video. We made this table from hard white maple (the base) and genuine mahogany (top), and the combo is awesome.

Check it out, and visit our website if you’re interested in build some projects out of mahogany.
