African blackwood 1 block. Air dried and end sealed with wax.
Dimensions 210mm x 52mm x 52mm
Black, with little or no discernible grain. Very difficult to work with hand or machine tools, with an extreme blunting effect on cutters. African Blackwood is most often used in turned objects, where it is considered to be among the very finest of all turning woods capable of holding threads and other intricate details well. When made into clarinet or oboe bodies, the wood is typically processed on metal-working equipment, giving it a reputation as being metal-like in some of its working properties
