Our Genuine West Indian Mahogany Lumber for sale is the top seller of all the types of Mahogany Lumber we carry. There is no significant difference between West Indian Mahogany and Genuine Mahogany. As a matter of fact, they are pretty much the exact same species. Genuine Mahogany, also known as Honduran Mahogany, is grown in Central and South America. West Indian Mahogany is cultivated on the island of Trinidad, just off the coast of Venezuela. There are however many differences when compared to Santos Mahogany, Sapele, or African Mahogany.
This Genuine Mahogany has a pinkish complexion which develops into a reddish brown as the wood ages. It has the highest rot and decay resistance amongst the other types of Mahogany we sell. The Genuine West Indian Mahogany Lumber we carry also has very consistent grain and has few knots or voids. This gives the wood a smooth even grain pattern which makes it ideal for fine furnishings and wood craft. It is used in an array of applications such as boat building, guitar manufacturing, and custom cabinetry. Its appearance and character can vary from time to time. To control this we constantly inspect and adjust our procedure to ensure consistent quality is being produced.
Genuine Mahogany Wood can be expensive, but consumers are often willing to pay the price for its visual appeal and rugged durability. It is always in stock in a variety of widths, thicknesses, and lengths to suit any project’s needs. If you do not see the size(s) you require listed here please CALL US!
