Ahh, Philippine Mahogany, the name was invented to make  Luan Plywood sound like high-end cabinet/furniture stock. It the only wood I have ever worked with  that a splinter actually required medical treatement

Irony of the modern world. You can ask a Chinese (at least the elusive and legendary "high end" Chinese manufacturer) for Mahogany and you get Mahogany.

Ask for Mahogany in the states and it's a crap shoot what turns up. Definitely not Ribbon Sapele though - it costs more than real Mahogany.
And the fact I'm still living rent free in his head makes me grin and giggle.
