Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by breynold2 Nice piece of ply
I'm using this for furniture and this is a nice strong piece of mahogany plywood. The finish is super smooth. This product is not sold in stores so you'll need to order it online. My other half thought I was crazy when I received a cardboard box that contained a piece of plywood, but when there are no local suppliers of this type of material, that's what you have to do. This is furniture grade so use a fine toothed saw blade.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GeoWright Flat, consistent core, nice veneer
I have used many of these panels with different species of veneer. ALL of them are good quality with few voids. This mahogany and the walnut are the most beautiful veneers so far.
I like the maple too, but since it is so hard, it absorbs finish differently than the walnut or mahogany versions. The walnut and mahogany veneers work well with shellac or oil-based finishes.
This mahogany veneer is rotary cut with a straight grained surface that looks almost too good to be true. Highly recommended!

This Mahogany plywood is a very good looking piece of wood, Has good grains on the finished side of the piece. Awesome to use on any project you may have. Once it is stained it would bring out the grains even more. The finished veneer could be thicker. There is not that much room for sanding. I am not sure if this is common. This ships very well. All 4 corners were in tip top shape and very sharp still

I was disappointed in the mahogany plywood. It does not appear to be mahogany nor African mahogany. It looks more like luan.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Mike Not what I was expecting
My first impression from the web listing was that this panel would work nicely for the bottom panel of a blanket chest that I am building. I took a chance and ordered it; the price was right and there is nowhere to get quality mahogany plywood anywhere near me.
The packaging was done very well and the panel was protected nicely in foam.
The panel was not completely flat, it had a slight bow, but nothing drastic.
Upon inspection, one side of the panel looked ok, but the other had several spots where the veneer had been sanded through to the next layer by the machines that processed the panel (see photos). Since this was for the bottom panel of my project, I only needed one good side, so I kept the panel and decided to use it.
When running my hand across the panel, I could feel slight undulations on the face. After cutting the panel to size, I could see why. There were many voids in the panel the had been filled with what looked like biscuits. These filler pieces were wedged in and pushed the outer layers further out making waves in the panel (see images). I'm guessing this is why the veneer was sanded through.
The real pain came when trying to set the panel in the groove around the chest case. I had cut the groove to 23/32" around and tested with the panel prior to discovering the wedges in the voids. The panel fit just fine with the test. Once cut and the poor areas exposed to the edge, the panel was over 3/4" where those wedges were located. This made it a real challenge to install as it was not a consistent thickness.
I guess you get what you pay for, but I was hoping for something a little better. Unfortunately, this was the only option in my area.

Mahogany is not available locally and not at all Home Depot stores, I used it to make a case for a serving set I made for my wife, the wood is a bit more expensive than the other woods carried by Home Depot but the results are astounding. My resultant project is absolutely beautiful everyone that has seen it has asked if I'd consider making them one.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GeoWright Beautiful veneer!
I have used many of these panels with different species of veneer. ALL of them are good quality with few voids. This mahogany and the walnut are the most beautiful veneers so far. I like the maple too, but since it is so hard, it absorbs finish differently than the walnut or mahogany versions. This takes finish well and the natural wood colors "POP" under simple shellac and wax finish. The rotary-cut veneer leaves a very straight grained surface that looks almost too good to be true. Highly recommended!
