PM, that was back in the '60s. I started out while in college with Dixie Plywood in Florida. We sold hardwood lumber rough random widths and lengths to the millwork and cabinet shop trades. Later in the '60s I was in Chattanooga at Georgia-Pacific. That's where we were selling to the foundry and pattern makers.
By the way, Honduras mahogany is probably my favorite wood. I love the deep rich color and fine grain. It is great furniture wood, and most of the furniture in my home is solid Honduras mahogany. It is getting a little rare, so cherry is taking over much of the furniture trade. Good, but not the best.
