African Blackwood Reject Clarinet Bell Blanks

Dalbergia melanoxylon

The heartwood 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. 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".

But 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.

Its stability, oily nature, resistance to moisture, and lovely finishing qualities make it superior to other timbers. These are best quality squares. Rare.
