Mahogany Lumber

About Mahogany

African Mahogany is the most common substitute for the classic (but endangered) Honduran Mahogany. It is very durable and produces a beautiful, highly lustrous finish.

Two ways to buy Mahogany lumber:
  1. Order by the foot. Select the number of board feet you want. We'll choose the sizes that will ship best.
  2. Order by piece. Choose your size. This option comes surfaced on four sides and is trimmed to width.

What is a Board Foot?

A board foot (bdft.) is a standard of measurement equal to one square foot that is one inch thick. This measurement is used to measure the volume of lumber.

You can order Mahogany wood by the board foot above or choose the exact size you need.

What is 4/4?

When lumber is cut at a lumber mill, the thickness is traditionally measured in quarters of an inch. For example, 4/4 equates to 1 inch and 8/4 equates to 2 inches thick.

When you order Mahogany lumber from us, it is surfaced on both sides (S2S), resulting in a loss of about 3/16 of an inch in thickness.

4/4 lumber will come surfaced to 13/16" thick, and 8/4 to 1 & 13/16".

After sanding or shaping, you should be left with about 3/4" workable material.

Looking for thinner material? See Project Ready wood.

What does S2S and S4S mean?

S2S means the lumber will be surfaced on two sides—it is planed smooth on the top and bottom face but not sanded. The edges are left rough.
S4S means the lumber will be surfaced on four sides—it is planed smooth on the top and bottom face with both edges trimmed straight and to size.

All S4S and S2S lumber is planed but not sanded. It will need sanding before a finish can be applied.

Is the wood clear?

All our Lumber is Select and Better (Sel&Btr) grade unless otherwise specified. Select and Better is the highest grade available.
Most pieces will be 83% to completely clear. Small peices are usually completely clear, while larger pieces might have small defects or a few sound knots.

Kiln Dried

Our Mahogany wood is kiln dried. Kiln drying is an effective way of drying green (freshly cut) lumber in a controlled environment to a specific moisture content. The resulting dried wood is stronger and more stable.
