genuine sinker mahogany- recovered after more than a hundred years from the rivers of belize
Description & Sample Photos:

This pile of Mahogany has to have one of the most interesting stories of any of our woods. We are calling it "Sinker Belizean Mahogany".... The wood is Genuine Mahogany that came from Belize (basically the same texture and color as the sought after Honduras Mahogany), but it is unique because it has been submerged under water in the rivers of Belize for 75 to 150 years! Back when Belize was a British colony they would float the logs to port. Occasionally the dense logs would sink. These logs were recovered in 2008 by a small Belizean outfit using small boats and pulleys to limit the impact on the environment. Altogether about 20,000 board feet of material was salvaged... and we were fortunate enough to supervise the cutting.
