DESCRIPTION & USES: Hard, dense & stringy wood that makes for phenomenal-looking finished products. The distinctive streaks embedded in the wood — which can vary in color from black to white to brown — add visual flair to pens, knife handles, pool cues, and a host of other turned items. Black Palm is probably not a wood that an absolute novice wood turner should try.
COUNTRY OF ORIGIN & BOTANICAL NAME: Black Palm (Borassus flabellifer) is native to Southeast Asia.
