Yeah, I suppose it could be. It’s in the same group as Sapele (Entandrophragma) and would have the same Cedar-like smell when you work it.
all these woods are an attempt to find tropical woods that match the wonderful workability of the real thing, the Swietenia group, and especially Cuban mahogany which hasn’t been seen in the commercial market since the Cuban revolution.it was almost all logged off under capitalism.

I had no idea at the time how precious that board was, and I don’t think the guys in the boatyard I hung around who sold it to me for a song knew, either). Export was banned in 1946, but it was still commonly available by 1962. A clean end grain view ( planed, not sawn ) would help. The real mahoganies look different than the impostors.
The wood Database has a good article on sorting out the different so-called mahoganies that is worth a read.
