A sapele A/V cabinet I built for a flat screen TV. Space underneath for video games, bluray player, DVDs and Bluray discs, etc.

Ribbon (quarter-sawn) sapele with frame and panel sides and dividers. Veneered pomele sapele for the back.

Dude, this is wonderful and that is not easy wood to work with. You can’t cover that top with a TV!!! Hang it on the wall! :-)

Lots of coats of Waterlox Original, after dying with red mahogany and dark vintage walnut Transtint dyes in an NGR mix. Plus assorted sanding with up to 600 grit between coats. Filling the grain turned out to be an issue with the sapele. I’ll try a different approach with my next piece. I really liked working with the sapele. I plan on doing my next piece with it too, assuming I can get decent boards.

As nice as the grain is on the top, the ribbon on the inside is magnificent. And it’s a single board.
