QTR Fumed Sapele 04.7727 HV

Entandrophragma cylindricum

Native to the African Ivory Coast and Nigeria, Sapele is also known as Aboudikro, Sapelli, Sipo, and Tiama. Its veneer color is dark reddish-brown and often displays some manner of figuring, often prominent ribbon-stripe. Grain is usually straight or wavy.

Fuming is a process in which wood is exposed to ammonia vapors over time, resulting in natural wood veneer taking on a darker, warm color, while retaining many of its original characteristics. Fuming can produce a variety of different shades within a single veneer flitch, so it is recommended that a type sample be requested for approval. .
