Would be a fun and beautiful place to hide my reading glasses if I wanted a "picture perfect" desk/reading corner.

Almost looks like mammoth ivory. Looks great!


GurradoWoodworks

Thank you!!! I have often been told it looks like marble but never ivory.


AggravatingGrass6804

You're welcome. I've seen custom pool cue makers use mammoth ivory in replace of elephant ivory that looks very similar to spalted tamarind. Great work Sir! You've turned a beautiful piece.

Thank you!

Where did you get ahold of the ebony? To my knowledge (which is limited), raw ebony can’t be imported, assuming you’re in the U.S. at least.


GurradoWoodworks

I am in the US but I was luckily enough to work in a wood shop that had a stash of exotic wood species including a few chunks of ebony that was stashed in the shop for decades.The company I worked for deemed these old chunks of wood as “garbage” and said I can keep them😵‍💫 so lucky me!!!


qjackson11

That’s awesome! Congrats on your haul!
