Yesterday I took my son to his guitar lesson and sat down to read a
promotional rag from Taylor Guitars while I waited, drawn by the cover
article, "Mahogany Futures". It's an article about how the company
has secured a steady supply of Belizean mahogany for use in the making
of necks for 70,000 guitars annually (about 12-15 good sized trees per
year). While geared toward musicians, it had enough information about
woodworking and the hardwood lumber trade to make for interesting
reading. The whole magazine can be downloaded as a .pdf from Taylor's

I'll second that. I used quite a bit of Honduran Mahogany in a sailboat
that I built. Wonderful to work with. It was hard to find locally in
lengths greater than 15 ft though :) Interesting article Ian. Thanks.
