Planed Sapele Timber

The Beauty of Sapele Planed Timber

A hardwood sourced predominantly from West Africa, people ordering sapele timber from Timbersource are often drawn to its deep, reddish-brown colour, which is often mistaken for mahogany. Like mahogany, it is often used for furniture, panelling, doors, and joinery. We stock sapele in kiln dried thicknesses of 26mm, 32mm, 38mm, 50mm, 63mm, 76mm and 100mm. Widths vary between 100mm and 400mm, and lengths between 2m and 5m. Some pieces may be straight grained or quarter grained, while others will feature interlocking grain spirals which can be softened by heavy sanding.

People ordering sapele timber from Timbersource will find that this is a reasonably hard and heavy wood which is easy to work, tending to saw easily, finish well, and peel and slice effectively for veneers. This is also a great wood for gluing and nailing, although it may tear during planing. Movement in service is usually rated as average, and this wood should not be used for steam bending. Though generally quite durable, it may not prove resistant to termite attacks, and the sapwood is particularly vulnerable to powder post beetles.
