Thankfully for lovers of Mahogany, there are many alternatives on the market. One popular, affordable choice is African Mahogany in the Khaya genus. The heartwood is a light pink-brown that darkens when cut to a reddish brown. It has a medium to coarse texture and a straight to interlocked grain, which can yield a striped or roe figure. The wood finishes well and has a lustrous quality. African Mahogany is used for furniture and cabinetry, paneling, boat building, veneer, office and shop fixtures, interior joinery, staircase banisters, handrails and domestic flooring. Grain runs with the longest dimension.



  • Easy to work, glue, and finish


  • The grain can be straight, irregular, or interlocked


  • Machines well, excellent for turning


  • Moderate blunting effect to cutting tools


  • Premier carving wood
