African Mahogany Doors
African Mahogany is a group of species sourced from west tropical Africa from the Guinea Coast to Cameroon and extending eastward through the Congo basin to Uganda and parts of Sudan. The sapwood of African Mahogany is not always clearly differentiated from the heartwood, which is initially a uniform pale pink to red brown color, darkening to a rich mahogany reddish-brown upon exposure. The grain of African Mahogany veneer may be straight or irregular. It yields a stripe or roey figure on quarter cut veneers and some logs produce veneer that is attractively figured. The texture is variable, but typically medium to coarse and an excellent finish is readily obtained. Our African Mahogany doors range in color from light pink to reddish brown and tannish brown. Although pores are distributed, this wood produces a very distinct and pleasing grain. Highly lustrous and durable.
