Black & White Ebony
(diospyros embryopteris)


Black and White ebony is a rare member of the ebony family, found mostly in Laos.   It tends to crack easily and we recommend special procedures for drying pieces thicker than 3/4" thick. Note that most pieces of Black & White Ebony have a few tiny (usually 2mm) insect holes and/or hairline checks---this is normal and is best finished by putting superglue (the black kind looks great!) in the holes/checks.   The only fairly reliable way to dry this wood is to turn it completely down to a thin walled piece all in one setting.  We also suggest you spread superglue, especially on the end-grain during the turning process, we do some of this glueing for you initially to most pieces.  Finish the project in one sitting if possible, and apply shellawax cream as a finish.  The piece will then dry very slowly through the shellawax, with minimal or no distortion.  Do not part turn these pieces to dry them unless you have some magic we don't have! Some checks should be expected in most pieces.

Read any notes for your piece here . Almost all have been glued somewhere with superglue, some more than others. Use black epoxy or black superglue with this wood, it basically adds black lines when you fill a crack and looks great. Clear superglue can be used, but it looks shiny when finished. Notes: Piece BW3 has a pith crack, we poured a lot of glue in , including black, but you might need to add more. Priced accordingly; Pieces 4,5,6, and 11 are dried completely over years which is pretty uncommon for black and white ebony over 1 inch thick. Piece 10 is almost dry.
Any piece: could have an unfilled crack/check, but we did run plenty of glue over these to get them pretty much ready for you. Note that piece 9 and 8 are labeled correctly in the photos, note they accidentally changed positions for the first photo above.
