Honduran Mahogany (Swietenia macrophylla) is also known as Tropical Mahogany, South American Mahogany, Caoba and Chiculte. It is planted throughout the whole of the tropics as a sustainable forest crop, and is widely available. It has a short grain which grows in a swirling pattern. The shortness of the grain makes it perfect for carving, turning, and other woodworking. It cuts beautifully without chipping, works a lot like Walnut, being approx. the same weight as Walnut, sands well, glues well and finishes to a luxurious red-gold sheen. There are few woods as beautiful or as pleasant to work.

    Good guitar neck material

    Very good for guitar necks. This size is prefect. One of these will make a good guitar neck. Good tone and moderately high strength for a lightish hardwood. One of the best features of this mahogany is its shaping. It shapes so well and nicely and isn't too harsh on cutting tools.
