by Wood - Mahogany Wood

Mahogany is a much sought-after wood, based on its hardness, resilience and beauty. It is commonly regarded as the world's leading wood for fine-quality furniture, cabinetry, sculpture, carving, interior trim and other applications. Mahogany has a fine to  medium texture, with grain that varies from straight to wavy or curly. Irregularities in the grain are considered desirable, producing distinctive, visually appealing "figures" - the interlocking and interleaving of wood fibers. Mahogany is a strong, robust wood. Its lasting durability makes it a popular choice for dummies. The wood resists swelling, shrinking and warping over time, making it ideal for areas prone to excessive moisture or humidity. Mahogany also resists wood rot.
