Our Texas Ebony wood originates from deep south Texas. This beautiful wood is hard and very dense. It machines and turns very well, and it finishes to a high natural luster. Weighing approximately 63 pound per cubic foot, it is heavier than water (i.e. - it will not float in water).
The colors of Texas Ebony heartwood range from a dark chocolate brown (almost coal black) thru a dark brown with thin stripes of lighter brown, and to a beautiful combination of light and dark, golden-brown heartwood. Texas Ebony sapwood is generally a creamy beige color, an attractive contrast to the heartwood.
