Our African Mahogany Lumber for sale, or Khaya as it is also known as, is primarily used for flooring, furniture and cabinetry, boat building, veneer and decorative trim. African Mahogany Lumber is the closest alternative to Genuine (West Indian and/or Honduran) Mahogany Lumber. African Mahogany Lumber is being implemented in applications more now than ever due to the higher price of Genuine Mahogany Lumber and its outstanding look when compared to Sapele. It has a very similar color and graining but not as stable. The African Mahogany Tree can grow to be rather large making it possible to find wide long clear boards.
