Mahogany, Crotch* - RAW VENEER

Mahogany Crotch

Price: $3.50
     African Mahogany veneer is a product of West Tropical Africa and is a close relative to species such as sapele. The heartwood color can vary across the color spectrum from a lighter shade of pink to a deep reddish-brown with dark streaks throughout. The grain is straight to interlocked with a moderate or coarse texture. Although this wood has great natural luster it isn't simply because of the wood but, rather a phenomena known a Chatoyancy which can be witnessed in this video by the Wood Database (Chatoyancy). Like most other forms of Mahogany, this variant tends to be moderately durable and moderately resistant to insects. Due to the crotch figure present in this veneer it can be easily used to make a standard project into something truly beautiful.
