Re: Mahogany wood wheels for opal?

Mahogany is too open grain a wood to make a good polishing wheel. The open grain will suck up the diamond grit used and you will not be able to grind or polish as the grit will be in the pores and not imbedded in the surface.

You need a finer grain wood like maple for this
