Striped Ebony

Macassar Ebony or Striped Ebony yields a bold and attractive look after the turning process. Striped Ebony Turning Blanks is a rare and exceptional exotic wood from Asia. The wood is very hard and dense; it’s extremely brittle at the heartwood. The wood is rarely available in veneer form because of short trees. The wood is the right choice for turnery.

The sapwood is not brittle and hence, it’s used in the making of tool handles. Striped Ebony is quite difficult to work with both machine and hand tools. The wood is difficult to glue, but the wood has a natural luster which finishes well. The wood is prized for its beauty. The wood is extremely expensive and available as limited numbers.

Diospyros celebica (ordinarily known as dark ebony[2] or Makassar coal black) is a type of blooming tree in the family Ebenaceae that is endemic to the island of Sulawesi in Indonesia. The normal name Makassar coal black is for the fundamental seaport on the island, Makassar. Makassar coal black wood is variegated, streaky dark colored and dark, and almost in every case wide-striped.
