Product Information:

Black and white ebony (Diospyros embryopteris) is an exotic wood with color that will vary, usually uniformly black with light-colored bands, pale to medium brown zones, or with marked contrast between almost white and black wood. The wood has a fine texture with mostly straight grain. A rare find. The wood takes a high finish and turns well. Ebony is commonly used for small ornamental purposes, such as piano keys, musical instrument parts, pool cues, carvings, and other small specialty items. The wood is exceptionally dense and strong. Southeast Asia and Laos.

    Haven't cut this blank because it's too beautiful. The most dramatic wood I've ever held in my hand. I compared it to the picture on line, because I thought it had been the peice used for the picture. Of course it wasn't.

    Comments about Ebony Black and White 3" x 3" x 12" :

    I ordered this based on the dramatic marbling of the sample picture in the detail page. After some research on the web I felt that there was "some risk" of not quite getting that much marbling in the wood I would received. And I ordered two blocks. Not sure what I am going to do with the creamy-yellow blocks I have with minimal to no black marbling in them. Beautiful wood, but not what I expected, or what I wanted for the project. The stars rate the "buyer beware" nature of the wood you will receive. Otherwise, I have *NEVER* had any complaint with *ANYTHING* purchased from Woodcraft.
