Occurrence: Central and northern South America, Atlantic coast from Mexico to Panama, Andean eastern slopes of Bolivia, Peru, Venezuela and Brazil. Main growing areas in Honduras, Brazil, Mexico and Guatemala.
Uses: Veneer wood, exclusively as front veneer in the furniture industry (main countries GB, USA), in interior finishing and in the piano industry. Lengths mostly up to 1.50 m.
Character: Mahogany pyramids are obtained from the knots of the trees and produced on the slicing machine. Often the pyramids are open in the middle and then no longer usable. The coloring becomes more beautiful with age and looks more and more noble.
Special features: The veneers of African mahogany, produced from branch forks or spikes, are beautiful works of art that present themselves to the viewer with mysterious contrasts of light and shadow, very lively and fiery. The velvety reddish-brown base color with a slight golden shimmer intensifies the expressiveness and beauty of this image. Really beautiful pyramid qualities are very rare and extremely valuable.
