White Ebony

Just a picture of some pretty wood. This is some Ebony I have, in the background is the Ebony 2×4 that the foreground piece was cut from. The white stuff is silica (sand), which I find pretty amazing in that the tree takes it up as it grows. As you can imagine, it is pretty hard on cutting tools. This stuff actually planes pretty nicely, except for those knots you see, which I’m getting tear out on (which, thankfully, doesn’t show up that well in the photo; the top is saw marks).
