This beautiful Ebony lumber has air dried for three years as of February 2019 and has been completely wax sealed or sealed on the ends. The majority is dry, but some of the wood contains 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 turning square has a 1/2" check present below the numbers.
