Product Description

African Blackwood Blanks (reject Clarinet Bells) - Scientific Name: Dalbergia melanoxylon

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.

African Blackwood has a  fine, even texture, with small pores that should not require filling; the grain is typically straight.

African Blackwood is most often used in turned objects, where it is considered to be among the very finest of all turning woods—capable of holding intricate details.

Customer Reviews

"very sad, your advert for clarinet bell blanks shows full size clarinet blanks, but you sent me half the size blanks amongst them, their was no mention of assorted blanks."
Star Rating 1


Very difficult to work with hand or machine tools, with an extreme blunting effect on cutters.  Capable of holding intricate details, and is reported to hold screw threads nearly as well as metal
