Plywood Empira Mahogany D/D: what is that?

Plywood consists of several layers of wood veneer. These layers are glued together crosswise, making the board very strong and barely warpable. These are therefore directly the advantages of plywood compared to solid wood, which is why it is often used in constructions. Due to the layers, the end edges of plywood are beautiful to look at and are often kept in sight. Plywood is made from solid wood, it therefore has properties that solid wood can also have. Long boards may therefore have a slight curvature and there may be colour differences between individual boards.


Empira Mahogany is a type of wood known for its beauty and durability. It is a natural material derived from the mahogany tree (Swietenia macrophylla), a species of tree native to certain regions of South America.

One of the main characteristics of Empira Mahogany is its durability. The wood is naturally resistant to insects, rot and decay, making it suitable for outdoor applications such as terraces, cladding and garden furniture. Indoors, it is often used for flooring, furniture and decorative elements.

Besides its visual appeal and durability, Empira Mahogany is also valued for its stability. It tends to shrink and expand less than other woods, making it a good choice for applications where dimensional stability is important.

However, it is important to note that the mahogany tree is threatened by excessive logging in some regions. As a result, it is important to ensure that Empira Mahogany comes from sustainably managed sources. Using certified wood can help preserve the mahogany tree and preserve the environment.

Overall, Empira Mahogany is a beautiful wood species with a warm appearance, durability and stability. It is widely used in both indoor and outdoor applications and offers a timeless beauty that will last for years.
