Genuine Mahogany 4/4 x 6" x 6'

Cast your eyes upon Genuine Mahogany, the humble wood that makes proud furniture and musical instruments. Because of its moderate density and supreme golden-red color, mahogany is a dream to work from hand carving to machining and applying a finish. Other woods might have an appearance like genuine mahogany, but this is the species (Swietenia macrophylla) that sets the standard. Genuine mahogany is stable, flat, clear, and gorgeous.

Unique Buy
