Honduran Mahogany: Exotic Wood

Honduran Mahogany is the king of mahoganies. This is the traditional and long-time favorite mahogany used for centuries in fine furniture across the country. Honduran mahogany was used so abundantly and readily available that it has been overused over the years, making it more expensive and more difficult to get. Rich brown to red color, easily machined and carved, it is a great classic choice for all woodworking applications.
