African Mahogany by the Piece-1/4" Thickness

Rating:
72% of 100

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!


Lumber Details:
  • 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.

Great product
I used the 1/4" African Mahogany to build a box for the toilet control on my 26' boat, oiled it, and mounted it over the Teak. It looks beautiful.

The African Mahogany purchased for my recent project was excellent, it had nice grain to it and very smooth. I would recommend this product to anyone looking for quality material at a good price.

1/4" African Mahogany
I have used this product twice as a fret board for a guitar. It is absolutely beautiful. Once again, I wish that Rockler would have more to choose from. I have to drive an hour to the store, and would like to buy more. I can only find one acceptable piece with no knot holes that isn't warped each time I drive out. Also, it is marketed as mahogany, but is really sapele not mahogany. either way, I would recommend it to a friend.

is the width true to size? Is the 5 inch width really 5 inches or 4 1/2?
Paul D on Oct 29, 2019
BEST ANSWER: The widths are almost always as advertised. The thicknesses sometimes vary a little, usually on the high side maybe a 32th over nominal.
