African Mahogany is found throughout Western Africa and is a light brown wood with shades of reds to gold with veining occasionally - called "ribboning".
This wood is about 20% lighter in weight than oak or cherry. It sands and buffs well to have a very smooth feel in your hand.
This is one of the three different mahogany woods we carry ...
- African (most common)
- Cuban (most rare)
- Honduran (most well known)
African Mahogany is used for furniture and cabinetry, musical instruments, paneling, boat building, veneer, office and shop fixtures, interior joinery, staircase banisters, handrails and domestic flooring.
If you are looking for a HoldingCross that is lightweight in the hand, this is an excellent choice.
