Turns well, but a sharp edge is recommended. Glues well, used for cabinet work, inlay and small decorative items, carving, turnings. Cut to size from quality, kiln-dried stock. 100 percent clear and sanded on both sides. Dimensions are +/- 1/8". Grain runs with the longest dimension. South America.

  • Distinctive pattern
  • Finishes to a high luster
  • Great for turning


  • Due to the nature of wood movement, shrinkage and expansion are possible. Please measure each piece carefully before starting any project.

    Wood is a product of nature, and as such, no two pieces are alike to start with, while the same wood growing in different locales can vary greatly even though it is the exact same species.

    Carving and Turning Blocks. Blocks are sawn to +/- ΒΌ" of size listed.

    Comments about Marblewood 3/4" x 6" x 36" :

    Of the 4 pieces that I ordered, one had a twist to it. In other words, if you put it on a flat surface and pressed down on the upper right hand corner the lower left hand corner would raise up, and vice versa. It makes it hard to make a square box with that problem in it. At least it was for me. Not a bow, no planing would take that out.

    Comments about Marblewood 3/4" x 6" x 36" :

    I use the wood I purchase to make cutting boards. I use the exotic wood on one side and put an oil base finish on it and use maple on the other side so you can use it to cut on. Dual purposes, a cutting board on one side and a dectorative piece on the other.
