Full length Sapele panel

Specially ordered in minimum quantity of 5 per item, these finger jointed panels & worktops are constructed from 40mm wide Sapele strips of varying length (250mm-600mm). The the strips are end-jointed with a finger joint profile (which is stronger than the natural wood) to achieve the panel length, and these jointed strips bonded together to achieve the final panel size.

This panel can also be produced using 20mm wide strips.

The Sapele strips making up the panel core and faces are bonded together with formaldehyde-free D3 water resistant glue, and the faces calibrated to 80 grit before being protected with shrinkwrapping

The panels can be supplied as produced, or cut or machined to pattern. They can also be supplied prefinished with lacquer, oil, wax or special finishes as required.
