- Veneer Panels
- Sapele Quarter Sawn
When newly cut, the heartwood is pink, but this darkens to a red-brown or purple-brown on exposure. The sapwood is clearly defined and is white to pale yellow. The grain is interlocked or wavy, with a moderately fine texture and a high golden luster. The wood can exhibit an attractive range of figure, with ribbon, bee’s- wing and regular stripe on quartersawn stock, and fiddleback, mottle or roe on other cuts.
