Mahogany, Phillipine

The wood name Philippine Mahogany (Shorea genus) is a loose term that applies to a number of wood species coming from southeast Asia. Another common name for this wood is Meranti. Another name that is commonly used when referring to plywood made of this type of wood is Lauan. Though it’s called Philippine Mahogany, it isn’t considered a ‘true’ mahogany like the Swietenia and Khaya genera.

Philippine Mahogany have five main types: Light Red Meranti, Dark Red Meranti, White Meranti, Yellow Meranti, and Balau. We not only carry Philippine Mahogany lumber, but also Meranti plywood and Red Ball decking.
