African Black Gaboon Ebony Wood

... wood priced in Canadian Dollars ................... View your shopping cart

black ebony Black Ebony:
(Diospyros crassiflora)

This African ebony wood is mostly black with occasional grey streaks, fine texture and a straight to wavy grain. Sap wood is pale yellow and very distinct, but rarely seen in the wood we receive.

The wood turns well, but a little hard on tools due to its density. Takes a very high finish. It is too hard to use nails or screws without first pre-boring. The dust can be irritant. Odor and taste are not distinct.

-- All wood is air dried (10 years),no sap wood, waxed ends, dimensions can vary slightly, although we do try and be as accurate as possible, can be minor variations in sizes between one end and the other --
