The topic of this article is of a real-life subject that has been mentioned "in-universe" in a canon source.

Mahogany refers to a group of related tree species within the family Meliaceae that all produce a hard, reddish-brown wood.
Mahogany was capable of producing wand quality wood, and was utilised by the wandmaker Garrick Ollivander. James Potter's wand was crafted from mahogany. His wand was described by Ollivander as "pliable and excellent for transfiguration", also having "a little more power" than Lily Evans's wand.
Behind the scenes
- While Garrick Ollivander was known to use mahogany (as evidenced by the fact that he created James Potter's wand), a description of mahogany wand wood was not included in his notes on Pottermore.
