I really love working with mahogany. It is one of the classic woods for fine furniture and millwork. Unfortunately South America has poorly managed its resources and world wide demand has overtaken supply (my take). Consequently the quality of South American Mahogany has gone down while the price has continued to escalate. I paid dear for for the wood that went into the newels below and treated it like gold. These went to a stair company in North Carolina for their customer. They found a picture of a stairway in a magazine. We up sized what was in the magazine and came up with these.
