Sapele Parquet Herringbone Restoration in Northwood
African Sapele had been covered in scratches induced over 25 years.
Sapele is a beautiful African wood which is grown mainly west and central Africa, places such as, Angola, Benin, Cameroon and Central African Republic.
The parquet was installed in early 1960, this means the wood has been down for 59 years. The wood has never been sanded, the varnish used at the time has darkened significantly hiding the beauty of the wood.
