I didn’t have a specific species of wood in mind when I went to the lumberyard, but I knew I wanted something attractive and wide enough to avoid gluing up individual boards. I found a nice batch of sapele, also known as African mahogany, and brought home 50 board feet of wide planks. indd 61 61 3/25/13 9:56 AM ⁄ 1 2"-long bit with a guide bearing mounted above the cutters.
