Quarter sawn or cut African mahogany.
Cut in this manner the heartwood color is variable, ranging from a very pale pink to a deeper reddish brown, sometimes with streaks of medium to dark reddish brown. Color tends to darken with age. Quarter sawn surfaces can also exhibit a ribbon-stripe appearance.
Grain is straight to interlocked, with a medium to coarse texture. Good natural luster with a light-refracting optical phenomenon known as chatoyancy.
Pretty cool for a darn tree hey.
This one is almost done, only needing the stain to dry and finish applied. This is officially the last piece I am making before Christmas.
Hey if you need a sign, plaque, door number plates, custom light switch fixtures, drop me a note. you wont be disappointed. -Thanks for looking and Merry Christmas. -Bill
