For the blanket chest i’m using 5/4 quarter sawn African mahogany. I went with 5/4 because the plans call for a final thickness of 7/8 which is quite difficult to achieve with 4/4 stock unless the lumber is nice and flat to begin with. I lucked out when picking my boards because not only were they wide (13 inches), but they were all 14 feet long and from the same log! This means I wont have to worry about the boards looking different when they age.
