Here is a fine cabinet by John from Switzerland, it is made with Barbados mahogany and demonstrates a wide range of woodworking skills.
Barbados mahogany is a very close relative of Cuban mahogany and is not commercially available any more.
A heavy duty pestle and mortar made from true lignum another banned wood. This must weigh a ton!
Some more lignum.
Wonderful book matched doors from more of the barbados mahogany, it looks like a monster rising from the flames! Thanks John for sharing the pictures.
To finish we have a couple of before and after shots from a happy customer in New Hampshire.
Below are some dovetails without the guide...
...and here is Shauns first attempt with the guide, much better!!
