9' TO 10' LENGTHS


Wood Description:
African mahogany is pink when first cut. Over time, it darkens to a reddish-brown, with streaks of pale, golden brown. The sapwood is yellowish-brown in color, and is not always distinctly demarcated from the heartwood. The grain is usually interlocked, giving the wood a distinctive fine grain. The texture is even, and ranges from medium to coarse, but even, with a lustrous surface.

Region:
African mahogany grows in lower rainfall regions in tropical West, Central and East Africa from Portuguese Guinea to Angola, and from the Sudan to Mozambique.

Working Properties:
African mahogany works well, but tends to woolliness and torn grain. It produces a moderate blunting effect on tools, therefore, sharp thin cutting edges are recommended. It has good gluing properties and holds nails and screws well. It can be stained or polished to an excellent finish. It is easy to slice and peel, and makes excellent veneers.

Main Uses:
African mahogany is widely used in furniture making and cabinetry, as well as office and bank fittings. It is also used in boat-building and interior joinery. It is a popular wood for plywood and other veneers.

 

                                                      

FAS1F:
This grade is nearly always shipped with FAS. The better face must meet all FAS requirements while the poor face must meet all the requirements of the Number 1 Common grade, thus ensuring the buyer with at least one FAS face. Often export shipments are assembled with an 80-20 mix, 80% being the percentage of FAS boards and 20% being the percentage of F1F boards.

The FAS grade, which derives from an original grade "First And Seconds", will provide the user with long, clear cuttings - best suited for high quality furniture, interior joinery and solid wood mouldings. Minimum board size is 6" and wider and 8' and longer. The FAS grade includes a range of boards that yield from 83-1/3% (10/12ths) to 100% clear-wood cuttings over the entire surface of the board. The clear cuttings must be a minimum size of 3" wide by 7' long or 4" wide by 5' long. The number of these cuttings permitted depends on the size of the board with most boards permitting one to two. The minimum width and length will vary, depending on species and whether the board is green or kiln dried.
Both faces of the board must meet the minimum requirement for FAS.
