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.

    Thin Stock. The thin stock is cut to size from quality, kiln-dried stock. Dimensions are +/- 1/8" of size listed.

    Carving and Turning Blocks. Blocks are sawn to +/- ¼" of size listed.

    Plywood. Sizes are nominal. Dimensions are +/- 1/8" of size listed.

    Comments about Black Palm 1/4" x 3" x 24" :

    This should receive 5 stars as the wood is actually quite beautiful. However, it came very poorly cut. It is supposed to be 1/4in all the way through but it is actually 14 all the way down to 1/8. It is frustrating as the board is very beautiful. [...] I needed the piece for an inlay in the floor and because of the delay I had to do something else.
