Product Description

African Blackwood Turning Square

We will provide you with a high quality turning blank in the dimensions of your choice. This blank has already been kiln dried and is ready to be "turned" into your next great project! We recommend using Honey Bee's Natural Wood Cream for a long lasting and food safe finish.

Please note that some of these pieces could have a small amount of white sap wood on edges. 

We can sometimes accomodate a larger blank than our standard sizes. Please email us for availability and a quote.

Dimensions may vary +/- 1/8" as we often prefer to lightly skip dress the turning blanks to reveal grain & colour. Some blanks may also come with waxed faces and ends.

Courtesy of The Wood Database:

Often completely black, with little or no discernible grain. Occasionally slightly lighter, with a dark brown or purplish hue. The pale yellow sapwood is usually very thin, and is clearly demarcated from the darker heartwood.

Takes s thread

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.

Blackwood turning wood

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.
