Mahogany African 4/4 Project Pack: 20 Board Feet

A 20 board foot Project Pack is a great way to buy some lumber because they're simple and we stand behind them with our 100% satisfaction guarantee. A Project Pack includes a total of 20 board feet of our hand-picked lumber, and you'll get a fantastic assortment of widths (typically between 4'' and 10''), and lengths (between 4' and 8'). Purchase a Project Pack when you need enough wood to make a medium sized project like a coffee table or cabinet. As usual, all the lumber is surfaced on two sides (S2S), and kiln dried.
 
Why Choose African Mahogany?

Its color, texture and grain give it a very close resemblance to classic Honduras Mahogany. Relatively hard and works well aside from the woolly surfaces that sanding produces; highly lustrous and polishes well; very durable wood.

Very nice wood
Review by  Brian in Hatboro from Hatboro, PA
I am very happy with the quality of the wood I received. I had one side ripped so it would be straight. The ripped edge is very smooth. The longest board was about 6'. The widest was close to 12".
