NOTE: on sets #1 -> #7, it was very difficult to get the proper color correction for these pics. I have succeeded in making the black heartwood look as much like the wood as I can (and it's VERY close) but the sapwood is really much more orange than what shows up here. See the pics and discussion on the wood ID site if you want an accurate pic of the sapwood.

the paper on which the number is written is a standard "yellow sticky pad" --- that is, a light yellow. The background is a white sheet. You wouldn't likely guess either of those from these pics, but again, it's because the color correction focused on getting the black heartwood correctly represented.

None of these are pure black --- they all have a noticible grain pattern --- but each has some modest area that is just about pure black. Also, in some cases the pics show a shinyness that is only barely present in the wood and gets overemphasized by the flashbulb reflection

ebony, gaboon #7 at $5.00 per piece (8.5"x12", 7 pieces available)
these are consecutive with #6 above, but this set has slightly more sapwood (and remember, the sapwood is orange, not the washed out color you see here)





NOTE: the pics below were taken in daylight rather than incandescent lighting and the color correction was easier than on sets #1 -> #7 above. However, in these, the sapwood is TOO orange, rather than not orange enough, but the heartwood is again accurately reproduced. These sheets are from a different flitch than sets #1 -> #7



SOLD
gaboon ebony #08 at $2.00 per piece (4.5"x12", none available) SOLD
several pieces have a crack about 1/2" from the heartwood edge, but the heartwood on all the pieces in this set is about as pure a black as you'll find. I wish I could get some wider sheets this black.

NOTE ON SETS 21 -> 31: The pics are a bit washed out on these. The darkest parts are pure black and the lighter parts are a dark tan with a grayish orange tint. This veneer and all of the veneer on this page was all purchased from the same vendor (although not all at the same time) but photographed with different cameras at different times.
