I am looking for some pure black ebony suitable to use in Segmenting and was wondering if any of you have some laying around, or don’t need.
Anything in the size 1/4in – 1in thick and 3/4in – 3+inches wide and at least 12in long would be ideal.
Don’t want much do I?????
Thanks in advance and happy to pay a reasonable price.

Bob.

Bob,

Glad that someone (Rob) agreed to help you out. But if you are in a bind in the future, what you are looking for similar in size to a fingerboard for a guitar. (A fingerboard is about twice as long, but similar thickness and width.) You can get these through lutherie supply shops at fairly reasonable prices in North America, thinking you could find some in Aus, too.

If you are using it in your segmented turnings make it your self. Use the vinegar rust solution and walnut wood. If you need more info on the process let me know. I have posted in my projects section a couple segmented pieces that used that black wood.
