Khaya Mahogany

$9.95 BF (Board Foot)

SKU: JATOBA-1 Category: Tag:


Color/Appearance: Heartwood ranges from medium to dark reddish brown, sometimes with darker streaks. Overall color tends to be slightly darker than other Khaya species. Colors darken with age. Sapwood is lighter-colored, and not always sharply demarcated from heartwood. Quartersawn surfaces exhibit a ribbon-stripe appearance.
Workability: Generally easy to work, though tearout can be a problem on quartersawn surfaces due to the interlocked grain. Moderate blunting effect on cutters. May stain and react with iron-based fasteners in damp conditions. Glues, turns, and finishes well.
Common Uses: Veneer, cabinetry, furniture, flooring, boatbuilding, interior trim, turned objects, and other small specialty wood items.
