WOOD BLANK, BLACK PALM (2x2x12) SPINDLE
Common Names: Black Palm, Palmyra Palm, Tal (India)
Scientific Name: Borassus flabellifer
Region of Distribution: Asia and Africa (insert map)
Janka Hardness Rating: 2,020 lb
Harder to work due to its robust fiber structure. This wood requires very sharp tools and light, careful cuts while turning. We recommend applying a hardening agent (preferably with shellac) or sanding sealer before finishing to reduce tear-out or splintering.
Color/Appearance: This beautiful, dense dark wood is technically not hard or softwood; this material falls into the same category as bamboo, grass, and wheat; due to this, Black Palm has no growth rings. This exotic wood showcases intense grain streaks of black and tan. These streaks become denser the closer you are to the outside of the tree.
Toxicity: Please be aware Black Palm may cause skin irritation. NOVA always recommends wearing a dust mask or respirator when doing any sanding and finishing with chemicals.
NOT THREATENED. All NOVAs turning woods have a Sustainable Rating; This material does not fall on the CITES list or IUCN list of threatened species.
