Sapele Logs originate from the West Coast of Africa.
Logs are fairly large and quartering material is readily available.
Sapele veneer is rarely figured and with a deep browny- red colour is a warm and attractive wood. The veneer is available in Crown and Quarter cut although the figure is more pronounced in quarter cut veneer. The figure can vary from a slight shimmer or “Bees Wing”to a strong fiddleback.
