I make custom nightsticks (Espantoons) for police and secuirty officers. Bubinga wood is one of the most commonly used wood. It's durable, easy to turn, and makes an excellent stick to carry on duty.
Exactly what I ordered. Great Stuff!!
The piece I received was shipped at 17% humidity. I had to dry it to 7% using an 80 Deg. oven for two weeks before slicing it to 3/32" strips. If cut as received the products tends to cup makeing it usless for my purpose. I get the best finish using to coats of wax free grain seal and three coats of Poly varnish. It loods three miles deep when I finish.
All woods have been of high quality and esaily worked.
