Nato (palaquium) is a wood native to to the Philippines (nato), fiji islands (bauvudi), Indonesia (njatuh), & Sarawak (jangkar). Contrary to popular belief, it is not related to mahogany (swietenia) at all. Mahogany & nato are in two different order & families.
Don't believe marketing!

An interesting fact, nato was used to make early latex rubbers.

Also, a quick search would have turned up these...

LEARN TO USE THE BLOODY SEARCH FUNCTION GODAMMIT.

Nato is like a relative of mahogany, it's softer and crappier, it's low end, better than plywood or agathis though.

Nato is not related to mahogany at all, as stated above you. It's not even 'like' mahogany at all. Very poor tonewood.

Yea, I didn't mean as in the real relative, but it's used as a cheap substitute for bastards for maho.

Indeed you're correct, but to me it sounds nothing like mahogany. Just bad marketing really.
