edslides Posted February 14, 2006 Report Share Posted February 14, 2006 my name is barefoot ed the other day i was given 5 3/4x 8x10 foot pieces of wood which was once a pallet used to ship a large machine from the phillipines to texas. it then sat in the texas weather for two or three years. it appears to be a VERY hard variety of mahogany with some interesting grain anomalies. it is unusually reddish with yellow streaks when wet, and is so dense that water doesnt seem to penetrate it. can this be cosidered to be sufficiently air dried to use as guitar wood? in all this time it has not bowed, warped or twisted. it dulls saw blades. its tap tone seems to sustain. could this be too hard? copy/paste this link http://photobucket.com/albums/f302/edslide...¤t=000_0526.jpg Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
