MAHOGANY (Swietenia mahogani)


The heavyweight of all woods, Mahogany is one of the most valuable timber trees. Very popular in the 50's, Mahogany is currently making a full comeback due to the new attraction of the "red woods'.  The timber is reasonably stable.

Untreated Mahogany will last for some 20 years. Mahogany is susceptible for dry-wood termite attacks.


Interlocked or straight grain, often with a ribbon figure and a moderately coarse texture. Creamy white sapwood and reddish brown hearthwood, often with a purple cast. Mahogany is prized for its figures which include stripe, roe, curly, blister, fiddleback and mottle.

Physical properties

Very stable hardwood. Moderately heavy but very strong and durable in decay resistance and moderately resistant to dry-wood termites. Low stiffness and shock resistance.


Interior doors, cabinetry, indoor furniture, boat building, paneling, veneers.
