    Default Re: I need a very small piece of mahogany trim, please (By: Jasons34)

    I think we all agree the majority of the wood is oak, but I do see some small panels surrounded by the inlaid border that appears to what might be mahogany. And I have yet to see exactly what is missing, but it looks like that section is short on the bottom edge, especially in picture 4 and 10. ??

    If you have a furniture restorer nearby, he might sell you a piece from his donor furniture stash. If you can pop off a small piece without damaging it, I'd bring along a sample. Might bring along a large coffee too. A little Bribery never hurts.

    Jason, Thought maybe he was talking about this panel. See the bad section at the bottom above the inlaid border. Looks like it could be crotch wood mahogany?

    Hi everyone, and thanks for all the comments/contributions to date. Upon further reflection, I do agree the missing trim piece is most likely oak, rather than mahogany. Here is a better picture showing where the trim is missing....

    If it were mine, I would gently remove the front end of the broken piece and take it to a local woodworker to see if it can be replicated.

    You would have to know the total length that you would want.....could even have them make it to the exact specifications needed.
