Mango wood is one of the most popular wood types in the United Kingdom and is often viewed as a greener alternative to some other woods. Mango wood is derived from the Mango tree, which is a fruiting tree belonging to the genus, Mangifera. Although Mango wood is extremely popular, the tree is largely cultivated for its fruit and is native to South and Southeast Asia, with the highest concentration of Mango trees being found in India. Mango wood is one of the hardest woods in the world, with densely packed grains that are able to resist all kinds of knocks and prangs. Additionally, thanks to its close-knit grain, when finished, the wood is one of the smoothest and most satisfying textures around. Despite its fine grain, the good news is that the material is also excellent for staining and waxing making it a perfect material for furniture. To achieve this beautiful Oak-ish finish on the furniture the cabinet makers use a circular hand-held sanding machine on the surface to make it smooth and dust free. The next stage of the process is to apply stain to minimise the extreme colour variations from light to dark. After this two coats of lacquer is applied and then once dried a layer of sealer is also applied, this makes the piece of product last longer and gives a natural sheen and body to the surface.
