Sapele is the new Mahogany

I got a referal from a good friend to help out a friend of his that had an unusual request to replace his front door.  He and his wife had been on vacation in Bali and wanted to bring the Bali resort feel home with thier entry door replacement.  The shot below is what they had existing.
The shot below is what I replaced it with.  Sapele hardwood that I finished with my imported boat varnish system.  The tambour panel mimics the reeded glass sidelites and the tapered casings with the notched header really makes for an island feel in this entry way.  I like how this entry totally blends with the redwood ceiling to transform this entryway.
