Genuine Mahogany is popularly used in the creation of fine furniture, cabinets, flooring, interior trim panels, musical instruments, boats, fancy veneers, pattern making, turnery, and carving.
Its heartwood is a reddish salmon color, or yellow when fresh. As the wood ages, its color deepens to a rich red or brown, distinct from other lighter specimens of wood. Genuine Mahogany has a high golden luster with a fine to coarse texture and its straight grain often gives it an attractive figure. These qualities and more make Genuine Mahogany a superior material, prized by woodworkers and craftsmen from all over.
