Santos Mahogany Wood
Santos Mahogany Wood lumber is primarily used in flooring, furniture, interior trim, turnery and railroad crossties. The tree is well known for its yield of balsam used in perfumes, harvested mainly in Central and South America. Despite its name, Santos Mahogany wood is not really related to genuine Mahogany, nor is it even in the Meliaceae family, as is the case with African Mahogany and Spanish Cedar. Santos Mahogany wood lumber can have a Mahogany-like appearance, though it is typically much denser, harder, and stronger than true Mahogany.
