recently finished this... pommelle sapele veneer and QS sapele solids. interiors are maple. waterlox on the sapele, clear coat on the box interiors. blum hardware.

on this one i tried to carefully split the same boards for the rails and stiles on the back wall with the doors/drawers, carrying the grain through, even where rails split between drawers. it was a real pain in the tail to keep everything straight. but, i like the results, and with sapele which can vary wildly between boards, it's important.

Yeah, nice work. It almost reminds me of a luxury yacht cabin.

Every time I look at one of your projects I think you set a new bar and that anything else can't measure up. Every time you post a new project you prove me wrong. Beautiful work Dave.

Incredible! I love the look of sapele, and of course the craftsmanship is out of this world.

Very Nice, Were just finishing up a project using the same stuff, I found when working qtr Sapepe your almost forced to grain match the stiles and rails the grain is just so damned pronounced, but it makes you a very organized person, Again very nice

Really gorgeous, Dave!!

I have to ask though - I just made a test panel with some pommele sapele veneer, and the glue (I'm using Better Bond from Veneer Supplies) came up through the veneer all over the surface. Fortunately I was using a breather mesh, so it sanded off very easily, but it seems that it has lost much of it's chatoyance. I'm wondering if you had the same experience, and if this self-corrects after application of finish.

steve - it's a good question and sapele is notoriously difficult. i used two-part urea resin, and i used the bleed blocker powder (basically a thickener). it's really necessary to keep bleed through.

i don't know if the finish will hide it. tough call.
