“I have seldom had
experience with
a company with
such careful attention
to customer
Although I am sure
my orders are
smaller than most,
your products have
been of the highest
quality and your
responsiveness to
my special requests
have always been
treated with
respect and
My thanks to
all of your staff."

Khaya (often referred to as African Mahogany) ranges in color from light pink to medium brown to reddish brown. The figure on well-quartered pieces is the characteristic stripe resulting from interlocked grain. It is a strong wood with a coarser texture than Honduran Mahogany or Sapele, and has good tonal qualities. Workability, stability and  low cost make this a very desireable tonewood.

Note: Sides can be difficult to bend because of variation in density within the piece (less water in bending is better than more).
