Check the end grain pore / ray structure. Can you see clear growth rings? Are the pores even or do they tend to be clustered?

I ran into a huge load of old mahogany of all different types, and have had the pleasure of delving into researching the specifics. I bough several books and have done hours of online research.

I have samples of khaya, Swietenia mahagoni, Swietenia macrophylla to compare pictures if helpful

Check out this interesting old book
