Hi Guys, I am 3/4 the way done with a killer mahogany/French bleed and finish job and now I have the living room/kitchen to do but... DANG... they had a leak nobody told me about. It has been under ram-board this whole time and some of the boards are shot. They have a lot of the 5 & 7 inch boards left over from the original install but I can't find 3 inch mahogany anywhere. What would you recommend using in place of the Mahogany? Something that will take stain, oil and Bona traffic. It doesn't need to be perfect cause the boards are all different colors and grains.

If you have extra of the wide boards you may need to rip some of them to make the 3 inch width, then use a router bit to add the groove. An Easy Groove bit will do it. Keep the tongue. Use two grooves with a spline between if the tongue is cut off.
