The South American Mahogany lumber (specifically from Peru) arrived from Irion Lumber, after a few weeks acclimating to the humidity level in my newly built heated and air conditioned shop, we rough milled all of the lumber necessary to build the two chests. Rough milling the lumber yielded two 55 gallon bags of Mahogany and Poplar chips, here is all the rough milled lumber stacked and stickered, re-acclimating..

The only part of the case lumber we haven't rough milled is the lumber for the drawer boxes, the back boards and the case top.. Now onto the case top.


Irion supplied lumber for the top that will be one board wide, its currently in the rough all 20 5/8" wide of it.. A better shot of the ruler below..
