Product Information:

Borassus flabellifer Black Palm from Southeast Asia has a brown background streaked with elongated dark brown and black vascular bundles. This wood is hard and heavy and the bundles can be quite stringy, so extremely sharp tools are required. The end grain exhibits an interesting spotted appearance and the elongated bundles terminate in an interesting “eye” that glows when polished, revealing spectacular results.

  • Despite being somewhat difficult to work with, makes for phenomenal-looking finished products
  • Distinctive streaks embedded in the wood add visual flair to pens, knife handles, and other turnings
  • Sharp tools are usually required to work with Black Palm
  • Distinctive end grain
  • Native to Southeast Asia

  • 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.
