5/4 Santos Mahogany Lumber
5/4 Santos Mahogany Lumber
|DESCRIPTION||Santos Mahogany exhibits a range of color between light orange/brown with yellowish overtones to a dark reddish/purplish brown. This lumber actually a bit harder than Honduran Mahogany. This wood also features an interlocked grain, which gives it a strong ribbon-like pattern.|
|BOTANICAL NAME||Myroxylon Balsamo|
Balsamo (English) & Palo de Balsamo (Central America)
|MECHANICAL PROPERTIES||This wood can be moderately difficult to machine, as would be expected from its density and its interlocked grain. Sharp tools and fresh sandpaper are necessary for finishing premium surfaces.|
|WORKING PROPERTIES||This lumber is moderately difficult to work with but can be finished smoothly with a high natural polish. Because of the density, all nails and screws must use pre-drilled holes.|
|SEASONING||The lumber typically will be dried at the sawmill, rather than shipped green and dried in the United States. Even with this wood being so heavy, it reportedly dries without much difficulty.|
|USES||Fine furniture, cabinets, interior millwork, hardwood flooring, entry doors, stairs and moldings.|
|COMMENTS||This lumber IS NOT related to Honduran or African Mahogany|

Boycott the Middle Man

Since the inception of our company, we've purposely avoided, and have boycotted anyone in our procurement staff and our producers throughout Brazil from dealing with lumber brokers, traders, or mills with a reputation of non-compliance. While other company's might fall for the tricks and deceptive practices that many brokers and mills employ, we've heard enough horror stories from customers that have been burned to know that it's sometimes better to take the more righteous path. This simple action of avoiding the middleman has enabled us to consistently import and ship only the best, sustainably harvested Ipe wood decking to you, our valued customers.
