Its not real ebony, It's Macassar Ebony which is not true ebony but a cousin to African true ebony. It finishes Very dark sometimesand a Light brown. Both are hard as nails. That was the last piece, I have no more. But It is available, if I can get it i may as well get true ebony

Thanks Rodeo, a log would be nice, But you're right, the shipping would be way out there. It's alright I have wood.
Thanks for the comps too.
Hows your tiki coming?

Thanks Tiki-50. Most of these I have had awhile like the Small one there is #3 from Way back in Feb I think. They are pieces that were posted alonk with posts for commisioned pieces and I think people did not realize they were available and I just kept them and didn't push them. I post all my work at least once and don't try to sell or push them so some of themslip by people and this gives me a little inventory for HukiLau.

Thanks Octane, I guess he did whatever he had to do to be different.
Raffertiki, thanks, That was a piece of black Walnut Burl a bit different from the pieces you gave me. I want to try to get a piece from your wood that is black on one side and white on the other. That line is pretty well defined and I may be able to do it. I'll let you know when I do it.
