The name Mahogany first appeared in people's sight in a publication written by American John in 1672. Lin Qingxuan also mentioned in the article 'Mahogany': 'Mahogany is a special tree, beautiful in shape, tall and straight. It has been planted in many forest farms in his hometown, and it has grown into a forest several feet high. 'The reason why he is called Mahogany is because of his romantic peach petal color with aristocratic flavor. Different mahogany has different colors, ranging from golden yellow to deep reddish brown. Sir Walter Raleig made a mahogany table for Elizabeth I in the 18th century. Since then, the fame of mahogany has increased day by day, and it has never been sought after in the life of the nobility. In fact, the peach blossom heart was not produced in the UK at the beginning. His real hometown is Central America and Africa. But 400 years ago, the Dutch and the British accidentally landed in Indonesia. They were affected by the fertile soil and humid tropical rainforest climate. Fascinated. Therefore, the Dutch and the British brought mahogany from Honduras and Africa to Indonesia. But around mahogany, there are many, many prefixes, such as Honduras mahogany, African mahogany, Indonesian mahogany that combines Honduras mahogany and African mahogany... These seemingly tall prefixes are just Is it because of the place name? Different prefixes, what are the other differences between Mahogany? What kind of furniture are they suitable for? Here we mainly explore the difference between the five mahogany that are currently on the market. Mahogany of the Meliaceae is an authentic mahogany, native to America. In the timber trading market, it can be called: Honduras mahogany, West Indian mahogany, Jamaican mahogany... and these are generally collectively referred to as Central American mahogany. Central American mahogany has moderate softness and hardness, uniform structure, low drying shrinkage, the wood is easy to dry, and it is not easy to warp and crack. It is easy to process, the cut surface is smooth, and beautiful patterns will appear when the diameter surface is cut. It is often used as a decorative veneer. Scope of application: high-end furniture, interior decoration, inlaid panels, musical instruments, wooden molds, car spinners, carvings and cabinets. The name of the mahogany of the genus Melia in the Meliaceae is often uncertain in the trade, similar to color-skin mahogany, fragrant mahogany, large mahogany...There is no exact statement. But the mahogany of this genus has a brighter color than the Mahogany of Central America. It is easy to dry and may be slightly warped. After drying, it has excellent dimensional stability and the heartwood is resistant to corrosion. However, it is difficult to polish when processing the interlaced texture, and the bending performance is also relatively poor. Scope of application: high-end furniture, joinery products, plywood panels, decorative veneers, etc. Related reading: Mahogany furniture of the nobles' favorite Mahogany is also known as African mahogany because it grows in Africa because it grows in Africa. African mahogany wood has a staggered texture, a bit rough structure, and a striped pattern on the diameter surface. It is easier to dry, but sometimes warps. Compared with Central American mahogany, African mahogany wood is lighter in color. Mahogany of this genus of the genus Ursaminaceae is generally divided into two types on the market: Brazilian mahogany and Colombian mahogany, with different names depending on the region. However, the diameter cutting board and string cutting board of Brazilian mahogany have exquisite patterns, fine and uniform surface, and low shrinkage performance. The material, color and pattern are not as good as Colombian mahogany, and more similar to real Central American mahogany. Scope of application: These two kinds of wood are mainly used for interior decoration, furniture, decorative veneer, etc. The genus Okamura in the olive family is mainly called Gabon Mahogany. The wood is light and soft, with a certain degree of toughness. The wood has a smooth cut surface, good bonding and drying properties, and is very suitable for sanding and lacquering. The wood contains silicide, which is easy to wear tools, but from another point of view, it is not easy to suffer from insects. Scope of application: manufacturing plywood, furniture, interior decoration, etc. Therefore, from the academic perspective, the so-called mahogany should be called the Central American mahogany-the wood of the Meliaceae mahogany; but from the perspective of commodity trade, the above four categories are all mahogany. They can replace real mahogany to a certain extent. Although the origin is different, the Latin name is different, and the related mechanical properties are slightly different, in essence, it is still the kind of mahogany with unique noble flavor that we like. The reason for the distinction is to make the material more reasonable. The best use of the material is probably mahogany.
