Beauty
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.

Sustainability
In our commitment to supporting responsible forestry, instead of harvesting this mahogany from natural rain forests, we made a special purchase from a sustainably managed plantation in Fiji. Shortly after World War II, the British planted Honduran mahogany Swietenia macrophylla trees in Fiji plantations to protect the species from over-harvesting. Today, the plantations use selective harvesting to maintain the health of the forests, allowing the trees to live their full lives - while providing sustainable economic opportunities to the island locals. This is the same species as what's called "Honduran Mahogany" - the difference is that because this wood grows in, and is harvested from, certified responsibly managed plantations the wood clears complies with international trade restrictions on precious mahogany harvested from virgin rain forests. 

Unique Buy
It's all 1x6 lumber rather than our usual random width offerings. With this product, you get uniform 6" widths (full 6", not 5.5") so you know what to expect. Surfaced 2 sides (S2S) from rough sawn lumber. You should be able to yield approximately 3/4" thickness after you flatten, plane, shape or sand your project parts to fit your project.
