Customers Rating:
African Sapele is a beautiful, lustrous, iridescence wood with colors that range from light pink to brown and gold to red. It is easy to glue and finish, having similar working properties to Honduras Mahogany. Interlocked grain makes iridescent figure. It is great choice for Acoustic and electric guitars as well as high end jewelry boxes and humidors. Kiln dried and surfaced on two sides.

This special material was cut from a $72,000 SUPERB pomelle figured log. It is all kiln dried and surfaced on two sides. Minor planer skip may exist. A few pieces have pin holes. Sapele is prone to bowing & twisting; however this species is very easy to lay flat again with minimal pressure. This is an absolutely stunning batch of Sapele that you won't want to miss. It is the finest material we have ever had in stock!

Lightly figured on one face and opposing face has very tight subtle pomelle figure. There are some 3-4" end checks at one end which we have subtracted from the tally for billing purposes. There are a few surface checks on each face. Slight live edge. One edge is not square. We have measured the usable width after the wood is jointed/edged. 1/8" bow. Minor planer skip on both faces.
