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.

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

    GENERAL DESCRIPTION
    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.

    WORKING PROPERTIES
    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.

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