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 $1400.00 (200 blanks x $7.00) 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

Due to CITES regulations, we can only ship this species to customers in the United States.

African Blackwood Turning Squares/Pool Cue 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. Slightly oily to the touch. The sapwood is straw colored to a bright yellow and can be as wide as 2". African Blackwood can weigh as much as 85 lbs per cubic foot. It is used for marquetry, inlays, knife handles, game calls, pistol grips, pool cue butts, chess pieces, jewelry, and other precious arts and crafts. 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. Long a favorite of ornamental turners, the nature of the wood allows very fine detail with sharp cutters, leaving a beautiful, burnished surface. Its stability, oily nature, resistance to moisture, and lovely finishing qualities make it superior to other timbers. These are best quality squares. Rare.

Panama Rosewood Guitar Finger Boards

Dalbergia sp.

This is a previously undescribed Dalbergia (rosewood) specie from an obscure corner of Panama. Only one small, expensive log was available and we took a chance by buying it. The useable material was quite nice with beautiful color and grain and a sweet, aromatic scent. We dried and sawed some guitar backs and sides out of one billet and it has very nice tonal qualities. We also have some 1" and 2" lumber available. The supply is very limited of this rare rosewood.

Due to CITES regulations, we can only ship this species to customers in the United States.
