2 different woods in nature. Go to the manufacture/supplier for moer details. And install info, otherwise we are guessing on glue or stable. Also depends on what you are installing on, light weight concrete, then my guess is glue, regular wood product sub flooring, nail/stable.
Again being Anne Sullivan.
Why dont you JUST GO to the manufactures sight and see the install info, instead of asking here???
None here know the install info that the manufacture recommends!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

For manufactured flooring “mahogany walnut” is a fancy name for BROWN!

Super special kinda wood.

Its the hybrid spawn of a mahogany and walnut tree. I say spawn but more like when they grow together and their grain intermingles. Know what I mean?

Looks nice I’d have it installed if the price was good.50 year residential finish could be a oxide finish very tough.
Don’t know why they would call it that.

I’ve looked at more than my fair share of wood flooring for sale. What I think the manufacturer is trying to say is that it’s mahogany stained to a walnut color. WHY you would want to do this is an entirely different question.

I think the “Mahogany Walnut Handscraped” means it is Mahogany wood with walnut stain that has been scraped rather than sanded !

The two dents are the bottom – stress relief grooves.

They ghost up to the top side so is still no good.

nightguy says things in an abrasive way but he’s right … look it up.

Mahogany – Walnut takes the understated elegance of mahogany and adds to its beauty with a rich walnut stain. The wavy grain pattern enhances the exotic look, ... blah, blah, blah, lots of marketing speak

I think we are seeing the “hand scraped” surface treatment, not dents or the bottom grooves “ghosting” or “telegraphing” through—adds “texture’ while hiding discrepancies. Currently pretty popular.

I agree that the NAME “mahogany walnut” does not identify a specie, but a color/finish

Wrong, it is the bottom grooves ghosting up, too consistent to be the hand scraping, and if that is hand scraping, my butt, it would have been by a machine. The product is JUNK!!!!

Welcome to the internet ffs….
While I can’t say that isn’t a valid bitch, 99% of internet forums(of any type) are no different than this place in that manner. Acting like a complete asshole isn’t going to change that….ever.
What should bother you more is the last sentence of your bitch, the asshats that answer these types of questions who very obviously(except to the poor basterd that asked the question) have no effing clue what they’re talking about. Just like you in this thread! Or the asshats who read a paragraph in a book once, and then parrot what they’ve read like they’ve lived it.
btw….Don’t refer to yourself as abrasive. Your not….I’m abrasive….your an asshole.

Inglish is not my native language but I thought mahogany walnut would mean walnut stained mahogany not vice versa.

I agree, a name is meaningless. For example, just because Ford named one of their cars “Mustang”, doesn’t mean it is made of horse meat.

Gimme a break Nightguy!!! Those two little shallow dadoes on the bottom are NOT “GHOSTING” through. Please.
The only sensible answer I have read so far is from Jerryminer. He is right on all fronts.

Back to Andre098’s original question: The name mahogany walnut is likely rubbish, and simply a marketing ploy like Jerryminer said. Nobody here can tell definitively which wood species it really is just from these pictures. However, if it is a foreign-made product, I would bet $$$ that it’s neither species! There are so many exotic species of wood coming to market these days as cheap replacements to depleted species such as mahogany, it could be almost anything.

Need to check with the manufacturer recommended method for installation. Some floors can be glued down while others must be nailed, and still others just float.

Hope this helps.

I think the “fool” was the original poster and purchaser of that plastic top laminate flooring.

I’m not sure what it was that you “googled”, but it wasn’t the same product shown by the op.
It isn’t plastic, vinyl, laminate, or engineered.
Feel free to post the links though.
