shihawk Posted February 21, 2015 Share #1 Posted February 21, 2015 This is a question for all the wood experts out there as my knowledge is very limited . I recently removed mahogany windows from my fathers house which could be 40 years old and although some parts are rotten (,the reason for replacing them ) most is as sound as the day it went in . It seems very fine grained and redish in color although this may be the result of countless coats of varnish etc over the years . Could this be used for ship modeling ,planks, posts etc or is it the wrong type of mahogany ??? Also about 2 years ago i had reason to cut down a large oak tree which has been stored in lengths and blocks in a shed which means it has been kept dry , is this usable or does it need more intense drying ?? I don,t want to waste time cutting it into useable lengths if it is not suitable ,also i may have to buy a saw especially for the purpose .
