With its deep black tone and high luster, Ebony has been the natural choice for piano keyboards for centuries. Its extreme density makes it a challenge to work, but with patience the results can be stunning. Whether carved or turned, it can be polished to a gleaming, jet black finish, with smooth surfaces reminiscent of polished stone. These turning blanks are available in an assortment of sizes for pens, 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. Turning Blanks come rough sawn to nominal thickness and are coated with wax.

Gorgeous piece of Ebony. The piece a received was a very neutral black with a little bit of figure that looked quite interesting at the end grain which was a pleasant surprise. The wood has zero checking and I believe is sealed at one end. Looks to have been cut to size prior to shipping. Going to put some extra thought into what I do with this.
