Mahogany Wood Veneer

Mahogany VeneerMahogany has become a kind of generic term for any one of a handful of imported, fine grain, reddish-brown wood veneers. Genuine Honduras mahogany has been over-harvested and is considered by many to be commericially extinct. Because of this, several other species are now imported from Africa and Asia. This alternate mahogany (Khaya) typically has a darker and tighter grain and is in plentiful supply.
