Details

These Curly or figured blanks are selected for character and activity and can range from a tight tiger stripe to a broad series of irregularly shaped areas of compressed grain that can look like spots on a leopard.
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.
