I got my hands on this “wood” pictured at no charge…
It is ebony (yes that’s right…..ebony!!) ....about 3/8’s in thick…..inlaid with faux ivory….
The reason it was free is because the vendor who did the inlay work messed up on the pitch of the inlay’s and the wood is unusable…...so…..it’s scrap!!!

Anyways I have 40 linear feet of it, (5-8 foot sticks)

So my question is…..
What do I do with it?????

Send it to me. No one should have to worry about such things.

get creative…even if you were to turn it over you could use it that way, but what a sweet deal for you, you can use it for so many things, have fun, if you think you will have trouble with it, then let me know…you really shouldnt need that much, and …......well you know…enjoy it , i cant wait to see what5 you do with it…

Use it for banding. you could rip it into two or three pieces and glue it up in a off- set pattern for a more unique banding.

Put it in storage. At some point you’ll find the perfect project for it.
