Alternative to real Mahogany
Afzelia is one of the many types of wood that are used to imitate mahogany. Because there is little pattern in the grain, the true strength of afzelia is that it looks very similar to the best mahogany.
Relatively coarse texture
It has a relatively coarse texture and requires some knowledge before use, because it can quickly make the edges of tools blunt, in addition there is cross-filigree grain here and there.
In the comparison with afrormosia and paduk, afzelia doussie has a less visible grain.
