Wanted to add to this thread after we came across some BIG wood during our latest shipment. This was a piece of Mahogany that got delivered today. It has got to be 15 years since we've gotten pieces this size, we always use 10/4 & 12/4 for our guitar necks, in general the boards come in 12"-20" in width, length is normally 10'-15' So today, in comes this monster, 14' in length, 38" in width 12/4, so that comes out to 133 board feet, almost perfectly flat sawn all the way across.
So just how big is this tree if this is only a piece of it [emoji15]
Just so happened, I asked someone in purchasing what we pay for Mahogany these days, she told me $8 bf [emoji15][emoji15]
