Any ideas where to get some black wood?
[FONT=helvetica, verdana, arial]Gaboon, Southern Nigeria, Cameroon, and Zaire Gaboon Ebony is known to be the blackest wood on earth. Otherwise, diamondwood or any other good wood for grips, stained black.
The flash brings out colors you can't see in the wood. In person it looks black and with a very close look you can see subtle touches of deep cherry and blond colors in parts. Absolutly beautiful!!
Here's a good source for wood - search to see if they have it:
I Googled it and found a few sites and it wasn't as expensive as I thought it would be. But of course, I don't know what the grain looks like and the size stock you'd need may be more.
Thanx guys ! Also what do u all recomend to make black wood or any wood shiny after sanding?
After you do the final fine sanding, use Tung oil for a nice luster
Might want to check WoodCraft http://www.woodcraft.com/stores/ they normally have a good selection.
I've got a great joke but cannot tell it as I do not want my wife to smack me upside the head..I found some nice grips at Esmerelda.com.
I'm surprised you actually found what you were looking for with "black wood" as a search term.
Using those search words.......I'd be afraid of the results.
Don't do that one at work, folks might start looking at you funny.
