thanks all! The wood is sapele 1 5/8 in thick. Finished with 7 hand rubbed coats of waterlox. I used waterlox so it can be repaired or recoated in the future after my customers little kids get done beating it up..

I do like that grain. I may have to try som Waterlox. I have some really interesting rosewood just dying to become something. Where can you get that stuff? I am not familiar with that brand.

Beautiful top. The finish looks great. I was just recently looking at some sapele at the lumberyard. It reminds me of mahogany somewhat..just a slight more brown in color. At $6 bd ft , it is cheaper than mahogany.
