Honduras mahogany and Nigerian mahogany come from two different species of trees, but their wood has many similarities. The Honduran mahogany is a hardwood which grows throughout Central and South America. In the 18th century, it was widely used by cabinet makers for making fine furniture. Nigerian mahogany has a much coarser grain and is more suited for boat building and general carpentry work.
