a wide board mahogany table

happy may day!
behold a beautiful piece of mahogany ... +/- 42" wide,
1.25" thick, a little less than 10 feet long, on one of our
steel shaker style bases ... it's for a summer boat house at lake george
so it has been in the works for a while .. spring is coming and now it is ready to go ...

the listing from our friends at irion lumber 
there are many more boards similar to this one there. in fact, i have
another one bought and paid for that looking for a new home 
table? desk? headboard? we are using one 31 x 11' currently for a
king size headboard project 
it's in the shop now ... more on that later

this is what they look like when they arrive
and after a little sanding, they look like this .. i kind of liked the bandsaw mark ghosts,
but i got voted down in favor of a little more formality
water jet cut and bronze powdercoated 'shaker' base, ready to install

more on the bed soon ...
