As you might have noticed, I've been lurking and gathering info for a long time. Doug and Leon's tears played a big part in me choosing a woody. (ok, that's what the wife wants,too.)
Bob, I hate to sound ignorant here, but all luan is a type of mahogany, right? I have a piece right now that I'm going to use as a template. I may experiment with that.
Any other opinions welcome!
