Re: It ain't like it used to be - wood

Honduras mahogany is also quite a bit stronger than cedar so you can thin it considerably for equal strength. It's very nice to work with, I've used several thousands of feet of that wood over the years (wish I'd saved more of it). It's also more dense so sucks up much less resin.
