Ebony
Ebony EBO
Ebony is a dense, hard and heavy wood. The black heart is usually very brittle. Because of its hardness and brittleness, Ebony can be very hard to work with both hand and machine tools. The wood has a fairly severe blunting effect on cutting edges. Gluing is rated as satisfactory to difficult, but the wood turns well and can be brought to a first-class finish.
