This is pre convention stock probably in excess of 30 years old.
Medium reddish brown darkening with exposure. Medium textured,strong, stable, lustrous and easily wrought. A sought after timber coveted by musical instrument makers because it is medium weight and resonant and by antique restorers and by reproduction furniture makers for the classic beauty and colour when mature.
Honduras mahogany is CITES listed and requires special licences for export. We regret that for practical reasons we are not able to supply this item outside the UK.
