So, What is Mango Wood?

When you think of cutting and serving boards, your mind might go to bamboo first. While many home items are made from bamboo because it’s easy to find, Mango wood offers a unique wood grain pattern and achieves similar sustainability goals.

When looking for the best eco, budget, and maintenance-friendly woods for your home, Mango should be at the top of your list!

Benefits of Mango Wood

Mango, classified as a hardwood, has become increasingly popular due to its strength, density, appealing appearance, and longevity. As a result, it is often used in furniture items, including beds, tables, drawers, doors, and floors.

This hardwood has a deep texture that makes it sturdy, long-lasting, and easy to shape while woodworking. Unlike other hardwoods, it is easily cut and carved into any shape that a woodworker wants. Mango wood is also incredibly suitable for manufacturing furniture, accent pieces, or other household items since it is favorable for polishing, waxing, and staining.

Compared to other hardwoods, Mango has a high resistance to water and is an excellent material for outdoor furniture because it resists water damage (and even more if it is polished!).

The wide range of hues available in Mango wood is one of the factors contributing to its popularity among homeowners. You can choose the perfect color for your furniture from gray, pinkish, brown, or yellow, depending on how the Mango wood has been finished. When you apply The Original Wood Oil or Wax, you keep your Mango wood surface looking beautiful.

The price of Mango lumber on the global market is kept at very reasonable and stable levels since the trees are widely available for growth throughout many regions of the world (with much of the lumber available from older trees that are no longer producing popular Mango fruit). Sustainable development and constant supply make this one of the better woods for the economy and local environment.
