Gaboon Ebony Overview

LATIN: DIOSPYROS CRASSIFLORA  ORIGIN: WEST AFRICA

Gaboon Ebony is an exotic wood native to Western Africa. It is an extremely hard, dense, and heavy wood, with a very fine texture. The sapwood is pink to pale red-brown in color, while the heartwood is a uniform jet-black or black-brown streaked. Gaboon Ebony is somewhat difficult to work with hand and machine tools, but is excellent for wood turning and carving, as well as inlays, tool and knife handles, door knobs, piano and organ keys, and instrument wood. It takes an excellent polish.
