Hi McMike.

Welcome to the forum.

Most people cut and plane their own 1/8" mahogany. It is a tough process that needs big tools.

Someone just advised us of a place in Buffalo, NY that sells thinner stock.

http://www.advantagelumber.com/thinwood.htm

No-one here has vouched for them yet, but their site seems very credible.

Keep us informed of your build progress!
Bruce.

Hi McMike,
Welcome to the forum. If you were closer, I would supply you with 1/8" stock.

McMike,

If you are really talking about 1/8" ply, try Noah's Marine. They're not that far from you.

Welcome!
