Overview

African Mahogany is strong, yet light, and works beautifully with hand tools. The color matures from a salmon tone when freshly cut, into a rich red or brown with age. The grain varies from straight to curly, sometimes producing highly attractive figures. Flat-sawn boards feature wavy horizontal bands. All boards are machined S4S to 1/8", 1/4", 1/2" and 3/4" thicknesses. Thin boards are well-suited for edging, veneering, marquetry, sides for decorative boxes, bending stock and bent laminations. Thicker boards are ideal for furniture, paneling, cabinet doors, moldings, drawer sides, fine jewelry boxes and whatever else your imagination can dream up!

  • Texture: Fine or medium to coarse, and uniform.
  • Luster: Highly lustrous.
  • Movement: Mahogany is considered to be one of the most stable timbers.
  • Durability: High durability, resistant to brown-rot and white rot fungi. Moderately resistant to dry-wood termite attack.
  • Weathering Properties: Very good - a great choice for boat building.
  • Planing: The wood is easy to plane, but figured grain may chip and tear.
  • Turning: Easy - turned surfaces are usually clean.
  • Polishing characteristics: Good.
  • Steam Bending: Fairly good.
  • Strength: Variable, but generally high bending strength and medium crushing strength. Hardness and weight are moderate, and density is high.

Janet C from Raleigh, NC Posted August 18, 2009
I assumed at this price the lumber would be jointed, plained and ready to use. 3 of the 5 pieces I bought were excellent. One was not square on any two sides and one piece was significantly bowed. Editor's Note: Lumber is surface planed on top and bottom. Edges are cut straight, but are not planed. Our customer service team at 800-376-7856 will be able to assist with arranging replacement for defective pieces received.
