This "genuine mahogany" is the lightest mahogany I have ever seen in 50 years (even African mahogany). I received 10 boards, 7 had black checking in the grain (4 very heavy). Only 3 "good" color boards. Good: no splits in ends, well bound and packaged

Ed, this mahogany is recently planed from rough, so it hasn't had the time to oxidize to the usual dark mahogany color. So, do not worry, all it needs is some time and you'll see the color come back. We are happy to replace anything that is unsuitable. Thanks.
