Santos Mahogany (Myroxylon balsamum) is a medium-textured wood that has a unique, interlaced grain. Its colour before maturation varies from orange brown with yellow highlights to a dark reddish brown. The colour change of this species is moderate and becomes a rich, dark orange-brown. This wood has a Janka hardness rating of 2200.The Solid wood boards including the finishing stages, such as sanding and the finishing, are entirely factory performed under ideal conditions. These pre-varnished boards are ready to be used immediately following their installation. Each board consists entirely of 3/4” thick solid wood; there is, therefore, no gluing or laminating required.
