Mahogany Wood has many advantages for outdoor projects, including posts and post caps for decks, railings, and fences.
- Durable and long-lasting. Mahogany is extraordinarily durable and a naturally pest-resistant wood. In 1985, a test by Forest Research showed that this wood also performs well in ground contact.
- Attractive wood grain and look. Mahogany wood is red-brown in color and, when sealed, has a nice colorful sheen.
- Water-Resistant. Mahogany is water-resistant, making it durable for projects like decking and boat building when in constant contact with moisture and direct water.
