Extremely hard material but if you are thread chasing it gives a very good, well defined thread. Polishes nicely but does not glue well, at least with wood glue. I have yet to try it with epoxy or superglue.
Absolutely excellent Blackwood turns like a dream, lovely finish. I am hoping to contact them to see if they can provide longer wider pieces. Very pleased with what I have. Very quickly shipped too. Great store, bit of a candy store for the wood worker!
African Blackwood is a beautiful wood to work with. With sharp tools, the dense wood peels off in ribbons and can be polished to a glass-like shine. Drilling the wood requires patience but the end result is wonderful.
