Suitable handle materials

Hi Guys

I'm renovating an old house and upon ripping out an old fire surround was advised that it is mado of old growth(1930s) teak and mahogany. I know that these are usually considered furniture makers woods but is there a specific reason not to use them as knife handles. If not any suggestions as to how they should be treated/stabilised.

Cheers
Tom
