Was planning on using the acacia mystery wood for an outdoor sectional and maybe some chairs. Not sure about the sapele yet.

Did you buy all they had?   I would have.   To make sure what you have:    https://www.fpl.fs.fed.us/research/centers/woodanatomy/wood_idfactsheet.php

I didn't but only because I wasn't sure what it was until I got home and planed it down. As soon as I did that, I called the guy back and told him I would buy more. Looked like he easily has another 200 bd. ft. or so. Thanks for the link. I think I will send them a sample!

How heavy is it?  I wouldn't want any of the low specific gravity South American stuff, no matter how cheap it is.

It is extremely heavy. I've never worked with sapele before so I don't have a direct comparison, but I'd say its close to as heavy as hickory.
