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.

Andrea098. I see you’re new to the sight, I promise most of the people on here are good people, unfortunately a few are….... well you see. Don’t mind that first comment. Stick around you’ll like it.

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!!!!
Yes I am abrasive at times, life is tough, some need to be toughed up.
