Specie Information

    Khaya Ivorensis

    African Mahogany has been used around the world for many centuries for everything from furniture, boat parts, high-end architectural millwork to vehicle bodies.

    African Mahogany is harvested from the Western or Ivory Coast of Africa and distributed worldwide.

    The wood varies from light to deep reddish-brown in color and has moderately coarse texture with interlocking grain. The wood is fairly brittle; you should watch for cross break when machining.

    The wood works fairly well with only moderate blunting of tools. The grain will fuzz if not cut with a reduced cutting angle of 15-20 degrees due to the interlocking grain.

    African Mahogany is readily available in both plain and quartered sawn, referred to as “Ribbon Striped”, in thicknesses from 4/4” through 16/4”.
