Beautiful finishing and shades: the mahogany quality used by Exteta is Sapelli only. The most beautiful and refined Sapelli quality and takes the name by the very thin veins that are similar to thin hairs (Sapelli, in Pidgin English). Its color may vary from yellow to red. Naturally Preserving: Thanks to the high density, the Sapelli Mahogany is not easily assailable by parasites and is very resistant the acci- dental shocks, as the traditional boat use proof. This is one of the most stable woods in nature. Wood aging: during the years, Sapelli Mahogany will turn its color to a fascinating silver grey. The graduation and the speed of this process may largely vary according to the environment conditions where the material is posed. This changing will have an aesthetic effect only and will have any on the long-lasting properties of the wood.
