Mahogany is a hardwood that is only available in specific parts of the world. There are three main types of mahogany, which grow in the West Indian islands and parts of the Caribbean, the Pacific coast of Central America and the Florida Keys. Due to their relative rarity and past over harvesting, mahogany has been used a little bit less often in recent years but it is still highly desired.
Mahogany usually has a deep reddish brown coloring that makes it popular for furniture and trim in addition to doors. Mahogany has a fine and straight grain, which also makes it a great fit for doors and furniture. It has minimal amounts of pockets and voids in the wood, especially when compared to other timber. This makes it a favorite of craftsmen.
