Project Description

From the elevator shafts of the Copper King Mine established in 1881 in Yavapai, AZ, The Lumber Baron is proud to announce the arrival of 6×8 old growth Honduran Mahogany. In search of dense, hardwood to support the weight of the mine shafts, the early miners trusted their lives to ancient Mahogany trees that came out of Honduras. Ranging in color from light orange and yellow, to rich red and purplish browns, Honduran Mahogany has long been prized for durability, density, and beauty. Logged to the point of extinction, this material is impossible to find unless in reclaimed form. Ideal for furniture and cabinetry, it can also be milled up to make exquisite flooring. The material could also be used as a statement mantle piece.
