African Blackwood is an exotic wood native to Eastern Africa, and is also known as Mozambique Ebony or Senegal Ebony. It features a dark brown, even purplish heartwood with dark streaks. It is an extremely hard wood, strong and stiff, very stable, with a fine texture. Mainly used for custom woodwind instruments, knife handles, walking sticks, and carving. African Blackwood is considered one of the world’s finest woods for turning. It polishes very well to a smooth, lustrous finish..
This Bottle Stopper is to be seen and to be appreciated. Remember there is only one of these designs making it a unique. No two pieces are the same. Each will have different grain patterns and colors.
The Bottle Stopper is finished with multiple coats of a CA finish, which gives it a durable gloss coat that will resist oils and signs of wear.
