african blackwood African Blackwood:
(Dalbergia melanoxylon)

Unlike ebony this is a true rosewood, with the grain structure and tonal qualities to make it the wood of choice for bagpipe makers

Heartwood is dark purplish-black or brown with black streaks. Narrow sapwood is white and very clearly defined. Grain is mostly straight with a fine texture. Slightly oily. No distinct odor or taste. Dull sheen finish.

Machines very well, almost like metal, and sands easily to a glass like finish.

5 lbs of mill ends
1/2" & thicker, 1-2" wide, 6" & longer

East Indian Rosewood turning squares East Indian Rosewood:
(Dalbergia latifolia)

A truly beautiful wood, rich in orange and black colours displayed in verigated bands. Quite an exotic turning wood

It is very stable.The resin makes it a little hard to glue, and it is necessary to predrill before nailing. No imports of lumber are allowed from Indian, only exported as turning squares or components for musical instruments.

1 1/2" x 1 1/2" x 20" (1 piece)
