Sapele Lumber (Exotic Wood)

Sapele (Exotic Wood) nearly always shows a pronounced interlocked grain which yields a beautifully regular stripe figure when quarter sawn or sliced. It is also seen occasionally with wavy grain which will lead to a mottle or fiddleback figure. The heartwood is durable in regards to decay but can be susceptible to insects. Sapele can be difficult to work when using planing or routing tools but glues and finishes well. Commonly uses are: Furniture, veneer, flooring, trim and millwork, boat building and turned objects. Origin of Sapele: Africa.
