Sapele is a reddish-brown wood that in many ways is very similar to mahogany. Sapele ranges from medium to fairly dark reddish-brown to purplish-brown. While sapele is similar in color to African mahogany, it is more durable than true mahoganies. The strength of sapele is similar to oak. We use only the higher quality grades of sapele lumber for our products.
