Mahogany and others

Sapele= Entandrophragma cylindricum

African Mahogany= Khaya anthotheca

Tropical American Mahogany (Real Mahogany)= Swietenia macrophylla

Sapele (pronounced sa-peel-ee) is a hardwood which comes from eastern and western Africa, and grows in a range of climates from the Ivory Coast to the Cameroons, and eastward through Zaire to Uganda. Sapele (Entandrophragma cylindricum) is of the family Meliaceae which includes mahagony. Although some may refer to it as sapele-mahogony it is not a member of the genus Swietena and therefore is not considered a true mahogony by purists.

However the one of the very best woods is Kiaat or Mukwa :- http://www.countrywoods.co.za/Kiaat_mukwa.htm

Pictures, pictures! we love pictures! Its been difficult lately for us to take any good pics of what we're doing in the boat--too many piles of stuff sitting on top of the finished projects

I take it you have "before" and "after" pics? goody

Always take before and after photos of each project...no matter how small. One day you will look back on this period as the best years of your life. Even though they seem like hell now.

I REALLY miss the refit days...every weekend ended with a tremendous sense of accomplishment.
