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.

Warehouse Visitors

We take the view that it is still appropriate to ask that masks be worn in the warehouse and that customers use the hand cleanser on entry. We will also be open on the basis of a maximum of 3 customers at any one time and ask that social distancing measures still be observed. Please read the notices at the door before you come in.
