Good Value Wooden House Name Plates

Pronounced Sa peel e, this species is another of the world's most extraordinary hardwoods. Its rich, lustrous, and variable reddish-brown color give it a mahogany-like appearance. However unlike most mahoganies, Sapele has substantially less movement in service. It is also even harder than oak and it is a very beautiful wood. It is a good value timber. Should always be maintained with oil or varnish. Click here for Wood Finishes
