Planed Sapelein a full range of sizes, 25mm to 100mm thick and 25mm to 225mm widths. Sapele heartwood is medium to dark reddish brown with well defined ribbon striping on quartered surfaces. The grain is interlocked or wavy with a fine even texture. Sapele will work well with both machine and hand tools, although the interlocked grain may cause slight difficulty when machining. It nails, screws and glues well, care should be taken when staining but once complete the wood will give a very good finish. Sapele is commonly used in high quality furniture making, joinery, shop fitting, door and boat building.
