Bed time... I don't think so. Not when you have the new LMI plunge Dremel base and a curly mahogany set that needs a sound port. I Love it. That was my first try at it. It knock off bout 15-20min of work! I knew exactly what I needed if for when you told me you had some with you at the GAL. I love that base and the light attachment is beyond perfect!

Khaya (often referred to as African Mahogany) ranges in color from light pink to medium brown to reddish brown. The figure on well-quartered pieces is the characteristic stripe resulting from interlocked grain. It is a strong wood with a coarser texture than Honduran Mahogany or Sapele, and has good tonal qualities. Workability, stability and  low cost make this a very desireable tonewood.

Note: Sides can be difficult to bend because of variation in density within the piece (less water in bending is better than more).
