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 inch thick. Note that some 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 and warpage should be expected in most pieces unless stabilized.

This type of ebony is becoming more difficult to get, we were thankful to get this material. I hope I am not announcing soon we cannot get it anymore. Despite the difficulty getting it, we actually got a slightly better price this time and we did pass that savings on to you. The import of this wood is very restricted because Laos, the main producer is not allowing any wood out of the country unless it is made into something first. Items not listed below or that give a red notice in shopping cart were already sold.
