Reclaimed Mahogany

lmb714's picture

I would like to make a top to a built-in out of reclaimed mahogany.  The built-in will be 84x22.

Does anyone know a source of reclaimed mahogany in or near Westchester County, New York, or along the route from there  to Woods Hole, Massachusetts?

You might consider looking for old furniture you can disassemble.  Of course, finding large pieces would be difficult.
