I started a project awhile back.. building a watchbox (basically a jewellery box) based on a design from a client.
I wanted to use quartersawn oak for the sides, and had some mahogany that looked nice for the back and drawer fronts.
I've now decided that I HATE MAHOGANY. Everytime I would cut it, it would twist and warp like crazy.. it was impossible to get any straight edges, on the drawer fronts, never mind some of the other smaller trim pieces. It would warp while cutting, burning the edge, and once jamming the blade when ripping (tripping the breaker on the saw). T I found it so frustrating, I had to put the project aside for a few weeks, before deciding to redo it using cherry and maple. Oh well.. live and learn.
Anyone have the same experience using mahogany?
