Mahogany is not a good choice for a bridge as it is not a dense wood. I would strongly encourage all to become acquainted with the WOOD DATA BASE before making any grand pronunciations about the characteristics of any wood. Oaks in general are a bit harder than Mahogany and a bit softer than Maple. Bridges are generally made of Rosewood or Ebony or something similar. There are many good woods for making bridges. Good bridge wood may be obtained from many sources, LMI, Stewart McDonald, Gilmer Wood etc.
