It all starts with choosing the right wood and finishing it to perfection. Sapele is an exotic, rich brown with undertones of gold, orange and red. The grain forms long, stunning ribbons which produce a natural luster. Though each board is very consistently colored, there is a significant color range leading to a noticeable variation once assembled. A member of the broader Mahogany family, Sapele is naturally water- and rot-resistant and thus an excellent choice for outdoor applications.

*Please Note: Due to the natural characteristics of hardwoods, including grain, texture, and color, we cannot guarantee an exact match to samples or online photos. Slight variations in color are normal and add depth and character to the product. Other factors such as age and exposure to light can further alter the appearance of the piece.
We highly recommend ordering a sample of your preferred species and finish as the final tone of the wood will differ across finish options.
