Oooooh! This is some of the sexiest wood you’ll ever work with! The golden yellow swirls & chocolate browns are to die for!

Wow, that is gorgeous! Wish I had room, but my lumber rack overflowed onto the floor a while ago. Seriously pretty stuff you have there.

I love Texas Ebony! It is so beautiful when finished. It is one of the hardest woods I’ve used. Mike carved a stump of this and broke 2 chisels. He had to use the grinder with a rasp wheel to shape it. Texas ebony grows in SW Tx. and northern Mexico.
