Topic : Wanted bit of Mahogany

I'm trying to fit a king post to my merlin (Adur 7). Does anyone have a suitable bit of mahogany the rightish shape, length for the job that I could purchase? 

Or any ideas where best I could try to source?

Many thanks,

Andy 07919 263488

Andy try Robins in Bristol, or you could call Laurie to see if he has anything. Not sure I've got anything thick enough myself, though have smaller bits if ever needed

Locally Andy your best bet is Champion Timber, just south of Tesco's by Shannon's Corner.  They have a box of offcuts and bits and pieces.  You could walk there from yours

Hi Andy, Sorry not to see you at Queen Mary.  Regarding your king post, you might be able to squeeze one out of this:
Cheers, Dan
