Most of the time the Tatami bed, as advertised, has Sapele (Mahogany) legs and Hard Maple rails. However, Ashley wanted hers just a bit different…a King bed in all Sapele…..and a Dark Walnut stain. I must admit that the stain spec through me off balance. Sapele is a beautiful wood….open pored, close grain, dense, and looks very close to Genuine Mahogany. So why cover it up?
Well, turns out Ashley knew what she was talkin’ bout…and I would happily stain Sapele anytime!
