    Hey, just found some wood that I am told is mahogany, and it was given to me. The wood has been there for 10 years and very dry. I was just curious how you would determine if the mahogany was suitable or not to use. Anythings I should look for? I'm thinkin it would make a few nice neck thru instruments with some maple down the middle.
