Ebony from streaked heartwood. The greyish-brown streaks make the otherwise deep black ebony somewhat lighter, yet give it a special charm. Waxed ends and virtually free of cracks. May be supplied with dot-shaped holes created by insects.
Ebony, one of the hardest, densest woods in the world, is often used in turnery, cabinet making, restoration work and instrument making for parts which need to either be particularly beautiful or resistant to wear, e.g. keys, furniture, and tool handles, jewellery, bowls, and intarsia. Ebony takes on an excellent finish due to its fine-pored structure. Density 1150 kg/m³
Some the longer edges on squared timber sections may contain sapwood. This is due to a resource-preserving cut.
The ebony we offer is verifiably sourced from countries that are not subject to species protection regulations.
