Sapele Neck Blanks

Sapele Neck Blanks


Sapele

entandrophragma cylindricum s.g. 0.6   Hardness 6.3KN,   T/R ratio 1.5 (good)   grown in the DRC and certified VLO


part of the wider family of Mahogany this redish timber with distinctive ribbon effect caused by the interlocking grain. Very attractive and of the same species as Utile, the timber is certified as of legal origin and is grown in west africa where it is abundant. It is medium density and very stable, it's ribbon strips which are visible in Rift and quarter sawn stock are caused by the tree growing with a twist which reverses every few years, this makes it very stable and attractive but also makes the grain irregular and slightly harder to work, a variety of the same species as Utile.

This is probably what you will get if you buy a Mahogany blank somewhere else and the actual species isn't named.
