Sapele Butcher Block - Made in the USA
Sapele lumber’s popularity dates back to before World War II when German citizens became infatuated with the wood for its use in decorative cabinetry. During the war, the wood was used to construct the propeller blades of Zeppelins, but it has since been replaced with its former use as a cabinetry wood. In Germany, Sapele is the “go-to” choice for high-end flooring, doors, and window frames, as well as for surface veneers for cabinets and bookcases. In North America, Sapele is probably most well-known as a result of luxury car company Cadillac’s use of the wood for accents in its Cadillac CTS vehicle, but it is also used in many of the same applications as Mahogany. Examples of its more popular uses include flooring, furniture, doors, windows, cabinetry, paneling, and decorative moldings.
