Honduras Mahogany

The classic choice in tropical timber The first mahogany to reach England was in the shape of ships. Although English shipbuilders marveled at the new seagoing stock, it was the joiners who really appreciated this New World treasure. They could span greater lengths and widths than with any other wood available, due to the sheer size of the mahogany timbers. By the late 1700s, the now- famous English cabinetmakers Chippendale, Hepplewhite, and Sheraton were shaping mahogany into classic furniture styles that kept the wood prominent for 150 years. Today's woodworker still finds delight in working mahogany into elegant cabinets, desks, tables, and other furniture.
