Quartered Mahogany

(Sweintenia meliaceae) Mahogany has a straight, fine,and even grain, and is relatively free of voids and pockets. Its reddish-brown color darkens over time, and displays a reddish sheen when polished. It has excellent workability, and is very durable. These properties make it a favorable wood for crafting cabinets and furniture. Mahogany also resists wood rot, making it attractive in boat construction.
