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.

    Many uses

    A good, durable wood. I made some outdoor ornaments from mahogany a while back and finished them with teak oil and they haven't discoloured much or split too much yet. I'm also using it to build my guitars and it's a good wood that shapes well and takes a good finish. Because of it's coarse texture, it can be hard to get it smooth at times as certain parts go "fluffy" when you try to sand them. It is a tiny bit rough on your cutting tools though despite its easy workability.
