Wood update

My friend Piotr (who helped me to get the veneers) have informed me that it is Sapele ( Which confirms the smell.

Boatbuilding will resume tomorrow.


  1. I used a lot of sapele when I built my Navigator, most of it was used to make the seat decking. It is very nice to work with and very beautiful when varnished.

  2. Yes it planes very nicely. I wasted quite a lot on my stems so I am not sure if there will be anything left to varnish ;)
