Wood Blanks – Plantation Mahogany (Swietenia macrophylla)


SKU: TIMBER-MAHOGANY Categories: , , ,


One of Trend Timbers premium Wood Blanks species!

Mahogany has been used for centuries. Plantation of this species was essential to ensure its survival and meet the growing demands of the timber market.

Initially from South America, this species is now purely plantation grown in Fiji.

The move to a more tropic climate has seen the Mahogany thrive. This has ensured its cementation as a forerunner in our history of using timber as one of the most user-variable.

Uses Include:

  • Wood-turning
  • wood-carving
  • boat and kayak building
  • fine furniture
  • joinery and cabinetry
  • a staple of the musical instrument industry especially in guitar making.

Technically a hardwood, the Plantation Mahogany’s workability is often comparable to the ease of some other carving species that are softwoods.

Recently it was also discovered to be termite resistant an essential characteristic for many Australian woodworkers.
