Sapele is similar to mahogany, with a deep, rich finish suited to furniture projects, conservatories and much more.
It is much harder than African or American mahogany, and in resistance to indentation, bending strength, stiffness, and resistance to shock loads, is practically equal with English oak

It works fairly well with hand and machine tools, but the grain is often troublesome in planing and moulding, and a reduction of cutting angle is needed to obtain a good finish. It takes screws and nails well, glues satisfactorily, stains readily, and takes an excellent polish.
