Ribbon-Cut African Mahogany
Ribbon-cut African Mahogany is an exotic hardwood that varies in colors, ranging from pinkish to a dark reddish brown; these color contrasts can be dramatic. Mahogany’s organic composition makes it very responsive to all kinds of light; generally, darkening over time. This open-grained specie, exhibits a textured grain pattern that varies from straight to wavy. Specific milling techniques expose an aesthetically pleasing “ribbon” characteristic within the grain. Ribbon-cut African Mahogany is a very durable, stable wood that looks beautiful when finished in natural or a variety of stains. This specie’s bold, natural color variance tends to limit the effect of many mid-tone stains.
