Sapele wood

Recommended Posts

I say just try it! When I bring new wood home, I get my tools and cut some strokes in various directions, one surface to the next surface and rounding a place. The wood grain is revealed, the hardness is experienced and the imagination can start to work.


I have no idea about what Sapele wood is. Sorry. You must like the way it looks!

Has anybody worked with Sapele wood. I have a 2X2" stick 24" long. It is reddish brown in color. If any one has carved some, I would like to know how does it carve, and what works better hand or power?


sapele' is in the same family as most mahoganys, but has grain structure like curly maple, medium weight and density.... carves better with power from my experiences...
