Mahogany Wood - Furniture Making

Have you every purchased a piece of Mahogany furniture?  What exactly is mahogany?  According to the dictionary, mahogany is a hard reddish-brown wood from the genus Swietnenia mahagoni. In the 18th Century, this wood was found in places like the West Indies, Florida and Cuba, but by the 19th Century, with the original sources of this wood depleted, furniture makers started using Honduran or Belize mahogany (Swietenia macrophylla).

Today, all species of the Swietenia genus are protected and cannot be used.  Most “mahogany” today comes from the genus Khaya from Africa, which is closely related to the Swietenia genus.  There are also other woods that manufacturers use that have a similar grain to mahogany and which are stained to imitate mahogany.  However, true mahogany is the choice of many furniture makers because of its durability and workability as well as its beauty when polished.

Dumb Mikey Sobs

Mikey goes to his office one morning as he did most mornings, even though we all know Mikey doesn’t really do anything. In any case, he is sitting in his office crying when his assistant comes in and asks him what is wrong.  Mikey says, “earlier this morning, I received a phone call that my mother has passed away.”  “I’m so sorry” his assist says, “maybe you should go home for the day.”  However, Mikey refuses because he said he would feel better doing something and keeping his mind occupied.

A little later, Sally hears Mikey cry and out is sobbing in his office again.  She runs in and asks him, “What happened now? Are you going to be okay?”  In between sobs Mikey looks up at his assistant and said, “I’m sorry but my sister just called and it has been a bad day!!  Seems her mother just died too!!”
