Figured Maple ~ Figured Maple is a domestic hardwood. The sapwood is predominantly a creamy white color, but some darker heartwood can be found. The wavy or curly grains produce a "fiddle-back" figure and sometimes a "black mottled" figure. Figured Maple is from the Hard Maple and the Soft Maple trees. Our figured maple is a mix of these species. The trees grow throughout the United States east of the Rocky Mountains, the New England, and the Great Lakes regions.
Gabon Ebony ~ from equatorial Africa, African Ebony is usually found in wet lowlands near rivers and swamps. Devoid of color, Gabon Ebony has ink black with lighter streaks. Only a small percentage of Ebony (three to five percent) produce the highest quality jet black Ebony. Ebony is complex and costly to grow, making it a rare species to obtain. Ebony is a treasured hardwood used by the Egyptian Pharaohs over 3,000 years ago.
