This beautiful Ebony has air dried for three years as of March 2021 and has been completely wax sealed or sealed on the ends. The majority is dry, but some of the wood may contain residual moisture. Uncommonly beautiful, you’ll see the unique patterns and contrast in each individually pictured board! It is natural in this species to have hairline checks along the black stripes. Sandpaper and glue can easily remedy this! We have carefully described the defects; however hairline checks can be present that are not specifically noted. This bowl blank has some surface checks and some end checks up to 3/4" long.
