Our ebony is sold unstabilized, as stabilization is not necessary. Ebony is a dense hardwood found in Africa, India, and even Indonesia. While it can be found in solid black, there are also striped varieties. Ebony is used for piano keys, pool cues, chess sets, handgun grips and much more. As with many naturally dense and woods, ebony does have some tendency to develop micro-cracks before being mounted. Such cracks can be repaired by filling with resin or with a mixture of sawdust and water-thin CA glue.
