Description:

Sapele’s color varies from log to log, but is generally medium to dark red-brown. Quarter cut, the somewhat pourous grain produces a distinct stripe formation with stripes varying from 1/2″ to 2-inches wide.

Applications:
Sapele is used widely in furniture, cabinet work, and interior decoration. It's ideal for office systems where consistent veneer is needed for large runs of production. It's used architecturally where vertical ribbon surfaces are desired.
