Product Description

African Blackwood is very strong and tough in all categories, but is not normally used for steam bending due to its weight and density. It has a severe blunting effect in tools, Tungsten-carbide-tipped tools are required for conversion. It can be difficult to work but turns well.
Pre-boring is necessary for nailing and screwing, and screw threads can be tapped into it almost as well as in metal. It glues fairly well, takes stain well and can be brought to a brilliant, lustrous finish.
Please note, the image is an example of what you could create with African Blackwood.
