Macassar Ebony is another true ebony with exciting color and striping. The striping varies in width and color. The predominant color is almost always black, and lines are interspersed with charcoal grey and pinkish tan. It works very much as you would expect an ebony to work, and is an excellent turning wood. It is also commonly used for musical instruments. It polishes to a high gloss (almost metallic if you want it to be). 1″ material is kiln-dried, thicker material is partially air dried unless specifically marked as being dry. Occasional shipments are making it through, with legally limited sizes. We do have 1 inch thick lumber, only shorts are allowed by law for lumber, usually around 40 inches long, 2.5 to 4 inches wide —email us if interested in lumber.
