Brazilian Ebony Sapwood Contrast Turning Square (12" x 2" x 2")

INCLUDES 1 WOOD BLANK (several blanks are shown to indicate the range of color/grain to expect). 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 but is easier to work. It takes a smooth, lustrous natural finish.  The color is described as a deep purple - black.  Sapwood (when present) is creamy white with some yellow.  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.
