This is quite incredible. I can’t imagine building with a material that is this expensive (at least here in the states) and this hard. He must have spent a lot of time sharpening his tools.
I just checked my primary supplier and I see that macassar ebony is selling for just under $100/bf. I also noted that the specific gravity is 1.09. That is one hard, heavy wood.

Amazing! We’re going to need the number of board feet of ebony and the approximate local cost of the house. Just a ball park number will do. Wow…
