Details

Macassar ebony (Diospyros celebica) has a dramatic striped appearance, somewhat similar to zebrawood. Dark brown to black heartwood with contrasting bands of yellow to golden brown. Very hard, dense, and heavy, it can be very brittle at its heart. The grain is usually straight but tear-out may occur on pieces that have interlocked or irregular grain. In addition to its constant demand with veneer mills, it is highly-prized by guitar luthiers: its great density gives the wood tremendous resonance, making it ideally suited for acoustic guitar back-and-sides or fretboards.

    Prefer to buy in person

    I build award winning custom turkey calls and ordered this wood at a customer's request. The wood was solid, but had no character in the grain. It was very functional, but not so appealing to the eye. I much prefer selecting my own wood in person. Customer was pleased with the sound and lines on the turning of the piece, but commented that the grain of the wood appeared quite bland.

    Great carving wood. Very hard, but worth the effort
