Mahogany Wood Species

Florida Lockers - Custom Wood Lockers

This Mahogany species is more commonly known as "Honduras Mahogany", but actually encompasses all of this species that grows throughout Mexico, Brazil, Peru and Central America. Its traditional identity with fine cabinetry and furniture justifies its position as one of the finest woods for this purpose. Its stability, workability, warm appearance and firm grain make it a favorite of all woodworking craftsmen. It is an open grain wood, with its heartwood color ranging from light tan to a rich golden brown depending to some extent on the country of its origin. Its outstanding stability and decay resistance expandsits potential to include exterior applications for "monumental" projects. It is most generally available as plain sawn lumber and plain sliced veneer with different veneer cuts available on special order.
