    SAPELE

    Scientific Name:

    Entandrophragma cylindricum

    Other Names and Species:

    Aboudikro
    Libuyu
    Muyovu
    Penkwa
    Sapelli
    Sapelii

    Origin:

    West and East Africa, from the Ivory Coast to the Cameroons and eastward through Zaire to Uganda.

    Appearance:

    The sapwood of sapele tends to whitish or pale yellow and is distinct from the heartwood, which ranges in color from a medium to dark reddish or purplish brown. Sapele is lustrous and fine-textured, with an interlocked grain that is sometimes wavy, producing a narrow, uniform roe figure on quartered surfaces. When cut, it has a cedar-like scent.

    Properties:

    Sapele is quite durable and seasons rapidly, but with a marked tendency to warp, so careful stacking is required.

    Janka Hardness: 1510

    Sapele is about four percent harder than hard maple, is roughly eleven percent harder than white oak, about fifty-one percent harder than teak, close to four percent harder than sugar maple, is twenty-one percent softer than jarrah, and is about twenty two percent as hard as Santos mahogany's ranking of 2200.

    Workability:

    This wood works equally well with hand and machine tools, and it saws and finishes easily. Sapele has good nailing and gluing properties.

    Principal Uses:

    Sapele is most commonly found in wood flooring and paneling, decorative veneers, furniture, and cabinetwork.
