Mahogany is a dense, heavy wood with an open grain and a dark reddish color which darkens over time. In addition, this type of hardwood is usually free of voids and pockets. It planes, sands and takes a finish very well, and is highly prized by fine craftspeople. Due to its straight grain, mahogany is less prone to warping giving it superior structural stability. This hardwood has low moisture absorption and due to its compressive strength it resists bending. Mahogany's quality and increasing rarity is making it an increasingly expensive wood.
