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?
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
dalbers ,i've got loads,when will you be about next?can give chris m a piece if your going to hayling! rgds phil
RA Bampton in southampton normally have a truck load of offcuts for less than a fiver. I may have a bit, I'm in Fareham.
Hi Andy, Sorry not to see you at Queen Mary. Regarding your king post, you might be able to squeeze one out of this: http://www.greenpeace.org/international/en/multimedia/photos/worm-s-eye-view-of-a-mahogany/
was that piece big enough?
Thanks Dan - I took a cutting.
