  I won't buy tropicals unless necessary.

Last year I made some sailboat trim for my BIL from Honduras mahogany. That stuff is a dream to work.

I do collect pieces of exotics when I can get them for free, though. By far the toughest I've gotten was a 4" x 8" x 6' chunk of "Bongossi" that friends were using to build a seawall for a historic property in "The Point" section of Newport, RI. I'd never even seen anything quite like it before. Six passes did in a brand-new Forrest ripping blade.
