Is it “in the wood” or is it “on the wood”. Meaning, if you were to run your fingernail over it, can you feel a catch? I just finished (actually in the finishing process now) a 36×72” sapele tabletop. I have a couple of areas like that where it’s a contrast in the wood. Not anything surface wise. It’s weird as sapele is pretty straight grained and you have this one spot where there’s a mark running perpendicular to the grain.

Your darker wood on the outside should “merge” into the color of all when you apply the finish. This is my first time working with sapele and I absolutely love it…
