fancy sapele at $3.00 per piece (8"x12", 2 pieces available) SOLD
"pomelle figured, marbled, quilted" sapele, and isn't that a mouthful. There are so many varieties of grain in sapele I can't keep track of them. See my web site for quite a few. This one is really gorgeous. The closeup shows the pattern reasonably well, but neither picture really does justice to the piece. It's a lot prettier in reality than I am able to show in the pictures. The picture on my web site does a slightly better job than these.

SOLD
sapele, grey pomelle at $1.00 per piece (4"x11", 2 pieces available) SOLD
I belive that this is pomelle figured sapele that has been bleached and then dyed silver. I don't like it, but as with the dyed bird's eye maple, I'm told that it is quite popular with some folks. It is more uniform in color that it would appear from the bogus yellow tinge at the top and bottom of this picture.


sapele, pomelle #1 at $1.50 per piece (2 pieces available: one at 5"x11" and two at 6"x11")
not a very exciting sapele, but could make a good contrast with a lighter wood and the pomelle figure is close to a "rainwater" variety.

SOLD

interesting color variation in this matched pair, with something looking a little like a Christmas tree in the middle

ribbon stripe sapele #1 at $1.75 per piece (9"x12", 2 pieces available) SOLD
actual color is slightly less red than this pic --- more of a uniform golden tan, and the ribbon stripe, while quite noticable, is not as pronounced as in the pic unless you get the angel just right

ribbon stripe sapele #2 at $1.75 per piece (6"x12", 2 pieces available)
even chocolate brown color is accurate but the ribbon stripe shows up more pronounced in the pic than in the wood unless you get the angle just right


ribbon stripe #3 at $1.75 per piece (8"x12", only 5 pieces shown, but there are 35 identical pieces available)




ripple figure sapele #1 at $2.00 per piece (7"x12", 2 pieces available)
ripple figure sapele #2 at $1.75 per piece (6"x12", 3 pieces available)
ripple figure sapele #3 at $2.00 per piece (7"x12", 4 pieces available)
ripple figure sapele #4 at $2.00 per piece (7"x12", 4 pieces available)
I've never seen this particular figure of sapele advertised before, so I have no idea what, if anything, it is formally called, and my deignation of "ripple figure" is arbitrary but descriptive. It's a very interesting grain and each piece has a uniform color. Between the 4 sets there is minor variation in grain and color and within each set there is little to no variation.

SOLD
rotary cut sapele #1 at $5.00 for the pair (13"x12" the pair, 1 pair available) SOLD
amazing figure and a rich, uniform color. There is a small separation of the grain on each piece that will become invisible when glued down.
