African Blackwood Spindle and Clarinet Bell Blanks
Dalbergia melanoxylon. Air dried.
All dimensions shown are in inches (length x square).
A dense, lustrous timber varying from dull brown to black with cream sapwood. Often mis-named as an ebony, it turns superbly and polishes up to a high shine and is firm enough for thread cutting. Also available as pen blanks.
The latter are about 4 3/4” high, 3” square across the base and 1 1/2” square at the top. They have been free-hand bandsawn so do vary in size.
Proposed CITES listing.
It has been proposed that African Blackwood be CITES listed (Appendix ll). Read more in https://cites.org
We have chain of custody documentation to show the African Blackwood we currently offer for sale pre-dates this proposal and Dalmann are actively working with the authorites on this subject and have recently documented the planting of more than 10,000 African Blackwood saplings.
