More unusual and more expensive than other species, these exotic woods make beautiful cabinets.
Mahogany: Valued for a look that's as rich as its name, this durable hardwood's straight grain often incorporates esteemed figures such as mottle, curly and roe. Reddish in color, mahogany stains well to reveal either light or deep hues.
Walnut: Dark brown to purplish black, this open grained wood's luster grows over time to increasingly reflect light.
Ebony: A dark wood with both black and brown grains, this rare species is best suited for decorative inlays and turnings.
