Indigenous to Southern Florida and the Caribbean. The tree grows to heights of 65 –100 feet and up to 3 - 5 feet in diameter.
Properties: Our Mahogany varies in color from a pale pinkish brown to a darker reddish brown. Typically, the denser the wood the darker the color, it also tends to darken with age. Some pieces exhibit chatoyancy, which causes the grain to take on an almost 3D appearance. It has wonderful working properties. It also sands, turns, glues, stains and finishes well.
Uses: Our Florida Mahogany was harvested locally and saved from the landfill. It can be used for furniture, cabinetry, turned objects, veneers, musical instruments, boatbuilding and carving.
