This exceptional African Sapele lumber is kiln dried, surfaced on two sides, and ready to use. Common uses for this high end material are guitars, ukuleles, and other fine woodworking projects such as furniture and boxes. A beautiful, tight “Pomelle” figure is present in most boards. This is the most figured Sapele lumber we’ve had in 20 years! If you are looking for something outstanding for your next exotic wood project, this African Sapele is an alluring choice! This slab has nice pomelle figure. On this slab, edges are cut on a 15 degree angle on both sides. If the slab is squared up, you could lose a total of 3/4" in width. There is a superficial scuff on the front face about 20" long but will easily come off.
