DETAILS
A distinctive, rare, true Ebony, Black & White Ebony originates from Southeast Asia and Laos. By definition, Ebony has no hue, but rather contains neutral colors like black or white. This special variety has inky black variegations flowing through pale milky white. It is an incredible wood with amazing color contrast. The wood density ranges from .67 to 1.02 depending on the coloration. It is excellent for turning and for use in fancy articles. When turned or finish sanded on boxes it is possible to obtain a high glass-like natural polish. The scientific name of this species is Diospyros embryopteris.

The wood in this special has air dried for up to 5 years.  Some pieces are dry and ready to use while others have air dried for a year and have lost up to 40%. of their original moisture. Most pieces are fully wax sealed. A few boards will have a check or two on one face with the best face being 90% clear or better. A minor bug hole or minor rough edge may also be present. A few boards are exceptions to this, but the additional defects are noted on the item’s description area. As the wood dries, the larger boards can develop checks or other defects if dried too quickly or not properly cared for. If you have any questions about care of the wood we’ll be happy to assist you! This is one of the nicest batches that we have had. The wood is absolutely stunning!

Some bug holes in sapwood face. Nice color!
