Customers Rating:
Brazilian Ebony is just as dense as African Ebony and has similar working properties with less of a tendency to split.  Although not a true Ebony, it shares many of the same desirable attributes. Trees are typically 50 -75’ tall with 16-24 ft. diameters.  Trees are generally only purplish – black on the inner third of the log.  Much of the sapwood is cut away just as in true Ebonies.  The best lumber is produced in tight stands were the tree has to gain as much height as possible to create a long trunk with very few limbs below the canopy. This is rare and very hard to find in large clean boards. The wood is slightly easier to work that African Ebony and has a smoother more lustrous natural finish.  The color is described as a deep purple – black.  Sapwood is creamy white with some yellow. Kiln dried and surfaced on two sides. A rare South American species that is seldom on the US market. Kiln dried and surfaced on two sides.  Contrasting sapwood edges are present on boards unless noted.  There is only a very small amount of this available so get some while you can.  Expect some checking on noted boards. Most have the checks in sapwood with fewer in the heartwood.
