Product Code: AFBWBB_MST

African Blackwood Square Discs & Clarinet Bell Blanks

Dalbergia melanoxylon. Part Seasoned.
All dimensions shown are in inches (square x thickness).
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.
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.
Proposed CITES listing.
It has been proposed that African Blackwood be CITES listed (Appendix ll). Read more in

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.
