The mahogany handle of a Nimbus 2000 broom

Mahogany is a hard, reddish-brown wood. While indigineous to the West Indies, Cuba, and Honduras the trees are now protected due to logging to near extinction. Much of today's Mahogany comes from plantations in the far east. Plantations exist in India, Bangladesh, Indonesia and Fiji.[1]


Mahogany is used as wand wood by the wandmaker Garrick Ollivander.[2] James Potter's wand was mahogany, and was described by Ollivander as "pliable," "excellent for transfiguration," and having "a little more power" than Lily Evans's wand.[2]

The handle of the Nimbus 2000 broomstick was made of mahogany.
