True African Mahogany

African Mahogany(Khaya anthotheca, K. grandifoliola, K. ivorensis, K. senegalensis)

Grown in Tropical West Africa

African Mahogany’s heartwood color is variable, ranging from a very pale pink to a deeper reddish brown, sometimes with streaks of medium to dark reddish brown. Color tends to darken with age. Quartersawn surfaces can also exhibit a ribbon-stripe appearance.

Its grain is straight to interlocked, with a medium to coarse texture. Good natural luster with a light-refracting optical phenomenon known as chatoyancy (having a changeable luster or color with an undulating narrow band of white light, like a tiger-eye gem).

If you view a map of the world, you can see where West Africa locked into Brazil millions of years ago. These species are very closely related to the ultimate “Swietenia Macrophylla” of Honduran Mahogany fame.
