    Welcome to MAHOGANY USA. Mahogony synonyms, Mahogony pronunciation, Mahogony translation, English dictionary definition of Mahogony. perhaps some non-Carib language of the West Indies] Swietinia mahogani, true mahogany - mahogany tree of West Indies. Honduras mahogany, Swietinia macrophylla - an important Central American mahogany tree.

      Calling one Mahogany “Genuine” seems to indicate that African Mahogany is not legitimately part of the Mahogany family; in actuality, both are real Mahoganies. So-called Genuine Mahogany hails from South America (usually Honduras, leading to its being called “Honduran Mahogany”) and is technically referred to as Swietenia Macrophylla. The name mahogany is commonly applied to many different kinds of tropical hardwood, most of which are reddish-brown in colour and widely employed in furniture-making, boat building and other high specification uses. However, there are only three species of true mahogany, all of which are indigenous to the Americas. These are Swietenia mahagoni (L.) Jacq., S. macrophylla King, and S. humilis Zucc.

    Common Uses: Furniture, cabinetry, veneer Namely, excellent dimensional stability, and excellent rot resistance. The wood also has a mahogany-like appearance, and is sometimes called pod mahogany (or even Rhodesian mahogany)—though it is not botanically related to other true mahoganies in the Meliaceae family.
