European Pearwood Bargain Box

Pyrus communis

Almost all Pearwood imported into the U.S.A. has been steamed to bring out a more pinkish-red color and to prevent drying stresses. Formerly the wood was used for carving, turning, drawing instruments, wood engravings, textile printing blocks, and tool handles. Stained black it is an excellent substitute for Ebony. Contemporary uses include woodwinds such as recorders, furniture, kitchen accessories, jewelry and other boxes, and architectural uses such as paneling and doors.

Our bargain boxes contain the mill ends and cut offs from producing the other products that are on our website. The pieces in this box may contain defects.

Net weight is 9 lbs.
Box size is 6 x 6 x 20".

West African Ebony Bass 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.

African Blackwood Turning Squares Barrel

Dalbergia melanoxylon

The heartwood of African Blackwood (Dalbergia melanoxylon) is purplish to brownish-black with dark gray streaks giving an overall impression of being black. Lustrous with an attractive inner chatoyance. Very hard, heavy, close-grained, and virtually free from pores. Some squares may have sapwood corners or more, burly or wild grain, occasional bug holes, small inclusions, small checks, etc., i.e. they have the small defects common to Blackwood. Still, I have milled thousands of these and have produced beautiful turning squares with many of them instrument-quality.

In quantity these sell for $3.50 each. Each barrel probably contains 400-425 squares. Buy a barrel and pay $2.00 per square, almost half the regular price. When we count the squares we will kick out any that are too defected.

We can usually fit approximately 400 squares in a barrel, but that will vary from barrel to barrel. Please note that while the price at checkout is $800.00 (400 blanks x $2.00) that price may change depending on the number of squares we can fit in your barrel.

The barrel will ship via freight truck. Please call us if you have any questions. 503-274-1271

African Blackwood Clarinet Bell Blank Rejects Barrel

Dalbergia melanoxylon

The heartwood of African Blackwood is purplish to brownish-black with dark gray streaks giving an overall impression of being black. Lustrous with an attractive inner chatoyance. Very hard, heavy, close-grained, and virtually free from pores. Its main use is in turning, and it claims the title of the finest of turnery woods, well known as the standard by which other turnery woods are judged. Long a favorite of ornamental turners, the nature of the wood allows very fine detail with sharp cutters, leaving a beautiful, burnished surface.

Some blanks may have sapwood corners or more, burly or wild grain, occasional bug holes, small inclusions, small checks, i.e. they have the small defects common to Blackwood. That said these have to be the best quality rejects I have seen in nearly 30 years. A good percentage have no discernible defects and those that do have minor ones.

They are an odd size to make it easier to turn the bell or flared end of a clarinet. On one end they are 2 3/4-3 1/4" square and the other end is 1 3/8-1 5/8" square with tapered sides as in the photo. Length is 4 1/2-5".

We can usually fit approximately 200 blanks in a barrel, but that will vary from barrel to barrel. Please note that while the price at checkout is $950.00 (200 blanks x $4.75) that price may change depending on the number of blanks we can fit in your barrel.

The barrel will ship via freight truck. Please call us if you have any questions. 503-274-1271
