Mahogany Doors: Thinking of a grand statement to grace the entrance of your home? A mahogany door from Doors For Builders may be the right choice! Ever since the 18th century when Sir Walter Raleigh had a mahogany table made for Queen Elizabeth I, the allure of mahogany has grown. Mahogany varies from yellowish, reddish, pinkish, or salmon colored when freshly cut, to a deep rich red, to reddish brown as the wood matures with age. Mahogany is fine to medium texture, with uniform to interlocking grain, ranging from straight to wavy or curly. Irregularities in the grain often produce highly attractive figures such as fiddleback or mottle.
Mahogany polishes to a high luster, with excellent working and finishing characteristics. It responds well to hand and machine tools, has good nailing and screwing properties, and turns and carves superbly. Mahogany is regarded by many as the world's premier wood for fine cabinetry, high-class furniture, and mahogany front doors. Some characteristics that make mahogany perfect for a grand home entryway are:
Resistant to Rot, Decay, and Infestation.
Seasons/weathers well with minimal shrinkage and checking.
