New Guinea Striped Ebony Guitar Peghead Veneers

Diospyros insularis

This wood originated from a small, sparsely inhabited island off the east coast of New Guinea. Some of these trees grow to enormous dimensions. One of the first logs we received from here was 3 1/2 feet in diameter, 18 feet long, and weighed 7 tons. It is fine-grained and takes a glassy smooth finish. Most of these pieces have a "marble-cake" look to the end grain that is outstanding.

The result is very white wood without gray or bluish staining.

West African Ebony Guitar Finger Boards

Diospyros crassiflora

Sometimes called Gabon or Gaboon, this Ebony is sometimes jet black but oftentimes has grayish streaks that mostly disappear when finished or after the made object has been put into service. This Ebony has a marked resistance to checking that is characteristic of some of the Indian and Asian species. It has a wonderful texture and is easily carved, planed, turned, and milled. It is fairly fine-grained and takes a high polish. This Ebony usually originates in either Cameroon or Nigeria and the logs are rough hewn in the forest and oftentimes brought to the nearest road by human porters. With the disappearance of other species of black Ebony this species is fast becoming the Ebony of choice.
