    Satinwood
    is a hard and durable wood with asatinlikesheen, much used in cabinetmaking, especially inmarquetry. It comes from two tropical trees of the familyRutaceae(ruefamily). East Indian or Ceylon satinwood is the yellowish or dark-brown heartwood ofChloroxylonswietenia.
     
    The lustrous, fine-grained, usually figured wood is used for furniture, cabinetwork, veneers, and backs of brushes. West Indian satinwood, sometimes calledyellow wood, is considered superior. It is the golden yellow, lustrous, even-grained wood found in the Florida Keys and the West Indies.
     
    It has long been valued for furniture. It is also used for musical instruments, veneers, and other purposes. Satinwood is classified in the divisionMagnoliophyta, classMagnoliopsida, orderSapindales, familyRutaceae.
     
    Mahogany
    is probably one of the largest ‘families' of hardwood, having many different varieties within its own species.
     
    Mahogany has been used for centuries in ship building, house building, furniture making etc and is the core structure of just about every 19th century vanity box, dressing case or jewellery box. It became more of a Victorian trend to dress Mahogany with these decorative veneers, such as Rosewood, Kingwood, Burr Walnut and Coromandel, so that the actual Mahogany was almost hidden from view.
     
    Mahogany itself is a rich reddish brown wood that can range from being plain in appearance to something that is so vibrant, figured and almost three dimensional in effect.
     
    Although Mahogany was most often used in its solid form, it also provided some beautifully figured varieties of veneer like ‘Flame' Mahogany and ‘Fiddleback' Mahogany (named after its preferred use in the manufacture of fine musical instruments).
     
    Cuban Mahogany was so sought after, that by the late1850's, this particular variety became all but extinct.
