The identical tree to the Honduras mahogany. Different aspects of growth result in a denser wood with a little more depth of colour and figure.

Board sizes are normally larger and grade is usually better than that of wood sourced from Central America. There is more perfection of grain in South American Mahogany making it a more interesting prospect for musical instrument makers and antique restorers needing to match the quality of the old.

COVID 19 UPDATE

We are closed to personal callers. Please shop with us over the phone, by email or through our online shop. The online shop at shop.exotichardwoods.co.uk is fully functional for mail order with thousands of items available from stock for immediate dispatch.

We recognise that the process of self-selection is by far the best way to buy and sell wood. Unfortunately it will be some time before we can accept customers into the warehouse again, even without lockdowns, because we have staff and family members that are actively shielding due to pre-existing health conditions.
