African Mahogany (Sipo)
African Mahogany, also called Sipo Mahogany, has a rich red color with golden sapwood. The interlocking grain is figured and when finished, it has a high chatoyance (striking optical quality in which areas of light and dark grain shift and change position depending on the angle of view, like gemstones). This effect means you see something new from every angel of the finished top!
Our African Mahogany is available in wide, thick and long slabs which are prefect for large dining or conference tables. We are also willing to cut to size, making it accessible for any project. This slab is a spectacular, yet very affordable option for a live edge or thick project.
We purchased two sustainably harvested African Mahogany trees in 2018 which were cut into two boules and they milled into 80 huge live edge slabs. They were precisely kiln dried to CS Woods Rocky Mountain Kiln Dry specifications and then the slabs were shipped directly from Germany to us in Denver.
The CS Woods woodshop created this table from our Sipo Mahogany slabs in February 2020. It is currently available for sale. See more photos, details and dimensions here.
