Pink Ivory Square Discs
Berchemia zeyheri. Part Seasoned.
All dimensions shown are in inches (square x thickness).
A rare and beautiful timber which turns like hard soap. Predominantly pink with fine streaks of pinky red which will darken with age.
Pink Ivory is the royal tree of the Zulus and legend has it that use by others than the Zulu Royal Family was punishable by death but the truth is probably that it was done to push the timber price up. Hopefully . . .
These blanks are from sustainable plantations so are not available in large sizes (or a wide range of sizes) and supply may not be continuous as the millers process each plantation; we have to accept whatever size blanks their trees have yielded.
The blanks are cut in the country of origin to provide local employment so we are selling them just as they arrive. The ‘bowl’ blanks are square (not round as we bandsaw most blanks) and all are waxed on all surfaces.
