    DETAILS

    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. As with all wood there may be checks, pin holes and/or other defects.  These turning squares are dry and ready for creation! Please note that the size may be 1/8" larger or smaller than the standard measurement given in the title.

    DETAILS

    Mun or Moon Ebony (Diospryus Mun.) is a rare species from Southeast Asia that is characterized by beautiful black striping and brown contrast inter-mixed with green and sometime faint red. The wood is dense and similar to Black & White Ebony. Mun or Moon Ebony is one of the most stable Ebonies available.  It is the least likely of all Ebonies to twist, bow, or cup if reasonable care is taken while working it.  Like all Ebonies the trees are small in size ranging from 35 to 50 ft. tall with only 20-30% having the desired dark colored heartwood that is merchantable.  Once the heart defect and sapwood are removed only about 10% of logs will produce desirable lumber or turning blanks. The wood is suitable for any high end article you are making such as jewelry boxes, knives, and pens. Mun Ebony is a great tone wood that has a nice bright tap tone for acoustic instruments. It has been suggested by many that it is a good substitute for Brazilian Rosewood. It is possible to obtain a high glass-like natural polish when turning this wood. As with any dense exotic hardwood, care will need to be taken when working with the wood to prevent checking. This has an 8" end check that is opposite of the numbers as well as a 7" check on the numbered face. This board is deemed 70% usable for pens and knives. It has been priced according to quality. Dry and ready to ship!
