Mahogany, Sapele: Quarter Cut

Heartwood is medium to dark reddish-brown. Quartered surfaces show a ribbon stripe figure. Has an interlocking grain with a fine texture.

Machinability: Machines relatively well, although the interlocking grain is susceptible to tear-out. Holds nails and screws well.  Care is required when staining because of the interlocked grain, but it is excellent for polishing.

Density: Specific gravity of .62

Thickness: 4/4, 6/4, 8/4

Grades: Sel. & Better
