Cuban Mahogany

Cuban Mahogany is the original and historic mahogany so prized by early furniture makers such as Thomas Chippendale, Thomas Sheridan and Duncan Phype.  It is native to the southern tip of Florida throughout the Caribbean. Cuban Mahogany works and machines very well and it is very stable.  It stains and finishes well.  The heartwood varies from a pale pinkish brown to a darker reddish brown.  The color deepens as the wood ages. It is frequently found in Hawaii.

Ikebana

Ikebana is the Japanese art of flower arranging. Blossoms, branches, leaves, and stems find new life as materials for artmaking. In contrast to the western habits of casually placing flowers in a vase. Ikebana aims to bring out the inner qualities of flowers and other live materials and express emotion.
