Primavera a.k.a. White Mahogany

Has anyone ever worked this species? I have an opportunity to acquire a substantial amount of it, but since I know zero about it, I want to do a little research first.

Thanks for any feedback.

I've worked small amounts of it, found it easy to work, but not what I consider a quality wood and very subject to blue stain which ruins the appearance. The grain IS quite similar to mahogany, and it is very light colored, thus the alternate common name.

You can never have too much pepperoni on your pizza or own too many clamps.
