Overview

Brown Ebony features dark chocolate brown tones with a pleasing grain pattern. It has characteristics similar to Black ebony, but is less prone to "checking." It works well, is very stable, will not change color over time and polishes very nicely. Edge-grain portions have an incredible 3-D figure. These turning blanks are available in an assortment of sizes for bowls, platters, carvings, bottle stoppers, chess pieces, tool handles, table legs, spindles, finials, candlesticks and whatever else your imagination can conjure up!

Due to high demand and limited supply, we cannot always guarantee that this item will be in stock.

Ok, I love this wood...and I...

Nathanael M from Janesville, CA Posted August 24, 2011
Ok, I love this wood...and I love Rockler's Customer Service. The first piece I ordered was very beautiful but very defective, having a large check right smack in the middle of it, which would take the 2x2x18 usable material down to tiny bottle stopper size. A really bad quality control decision. Rockler sent me a new one which was definitely hand selected and equally as beautiful but this time very clean. This is the first time I have had an issue with Rockler's Quality Control Guys so I'm not going to ding them and I certainly will not blame the wood. People, you need to try this stuff, it is beautiful. Rockler, your awesome, just pay attention to what goes into the box and out to us, you customers the first time.
