African Mahogany from TaylorCraft will be clear of defects, and the inherent color, character marks and grain patterns will be closely inspected and matched to create a relatively uniform appearance. General characteristics of African Mahogany are: generally straight grain with some swirls and crotch figures, usually free of voids and pockets and may include very small pin knots. It has a reddish-brown color, which darkens over time, and displays a beautiful reddish sheen when polished. It has a moderately coarse texture, excellent workability, and is very durable.
If you or your customers are not familiar with the species or our grading, we strongly recommend ordering a sample from TaylorCraft to prevent any misunderstanding.
