INCLUDES 1 WOOD BLANK (several blanks are shown to indicate the range of color/grain to expect). Palm is the only family in the monocot order. This is basically a bundle of small straws that are fibrous. Asian Black Palm is durable and hard with the black fibers densely packed together and surrounded by lighter colored less dense material. The end grain shows the black bundles crowded together like the end of a steel cable. There are not any growth rings visible in Palm wood. Our Asian Black Palm takes a fine polish and is commonly used for walking sticks, handles, picture frames, boxes and more. Our stock is air drying and contains residual moisture. Wax sealed ends are common. Unique color patterns, contrasting black with rich golden brown. It can be challenging to work with but amazing results are possible! Skill level: Intermediate.
