Macassar Ebony (Diospyros celebica) has a dramatic striped appearance, somewhat similar to zebrawood, that is 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. It has a dulling effect on cutters. The grain is usually straight but tear-out may occur on pieces that have interlocked or irregular grain. Common uses include high-end cabinetry, inlay work, musical instruments, billiard cues, turning, crafts or decorative applications.

  • Dramatic striped appearance
  • Excellent choice for turning projects
  • Takes all stains and finishes equally well, it looks wonderfully lustrous under a clear penetrating oil
  • Native to Southeast Asia

  • Wood is a product of nature, and as such, no two pieces are alike to start with, the same wood growing in different locales can vary greatly even though it is the exact same species.
