Sapele for large table top Reviewed by

Every board was precisely planed and well wrapped so they arrived via courrier with no faults. The wood machines well and only the very widest boards have shown the slightets cupping having been exposed to the summer dryness outside for a number of weeks. Great service from the guys at Woodshop direct.
