Sawn Sapele Timber:

Sapele timber is characterised by a marked and regular stripe, particularly pronounced on quarter-sawn surfaces. Occasionally mottle figure is present, it is fairly close textured, and the grain is interlocked. It is harder and heavier than African mahogany.

Sapele darkens over time. It goes to a rich brown with much less red in it than mahogany or American Cherry timber.

Stress factures' can be present in sawn Sapele timber, but a nice timber to work which most wood workers would agree.

Sapele timber has become one of the most popular wood types for exterior doors.
