Product Information:

The heartwood of Gaboon ebony (Diospyros spp.) is usually jet black, with little to no variation or visible grain. Occasionally dark brown or grayish-brown streaks may be present. Can be difficult to work due to its extremely high density. Has a dulling effect on cutters. Tear-out may occur on pieces that have interlocked or irregular grain. Takes finishes well, and finishes to a high luster. Ebony is commonly used for small ornamental purposes, such as piano keys, musical instrument parts, pool cues, carvings. Great for knobs, pulls, inlays and accents in cabinetry. Somewhat difficult to machine, but worth the reward. Excellent turning wood. Africa.

    Comments about Ebony Gaboon 3" x 3" x 12" :

    The piece of ebony I received was flawless. !00% black, no cracks, no checks. This evaluation is after having removed all the wax covering. It appeared to be instrument grade. Perhaps I was lucky to have obtained the top 1-2% of Gaboon ebony that is 100% black, but needless to say, I will be keeping this one.

    It was not sap on your wood. It is coated with a wax to protect the wood from minor damage and the elements. Every blank you buy comes like that not just Woodcraft.

    I am disappointed with all of the sap I have to clean off. I intend to use the pieces as a support under my (black tone) TV.
