Origin of ebony wood
In 1472, Portuguese colonists came to the Gulf of Gabon, because the topography of the area is somewhat similar to the coats worn by Portuguese sailors at that time, the Portuguese is "gabao", and Gabon is also named after it. The reputation of "Treasure House of Resources" and "Land of Green Gold", in the vast tropical forests of Gabon, is known as the "Noble in the wood", and the ebony wood tree grows here...
That is to say, ebony wood was discovered and used very early, but because the land transportation at that time was underdeveloped and mainly relied on water and air transportation, Gabon also faced the problem of backward infrastructure. Used to make high-end furniture and even used in private jets and luxury car interiors, ebony wood is less well known.
The black and gold interwoven curved texture of ebony wood is really beautiful, the color is eye-catching and very fluid, and every section can clearly show the beauty of the wood grain. Look at it, the hardness and density are relatively high, the wood is fine and hard, the strength is high and corrosion resistance is high, and the tube hole structure is fine.
People call ebony wood "the ninth kind of mahogany", because it takes a hundred years to become a material and is known as a "living plant fossil". Most of the ebony wood on the market relies on imports. The deep color can't hide its edge, and the simple shape reveals the beauty of life in subtle changes, which can always attract people's attention inadvertently.
From the felled logs to the final product, after more than ten processes such as drying, cutting material, longitudinal sawing, fixing length, fixing width, tenoning, etc., only about 30% of them can pass the factory in the end. This is also one of the reasons why the price of ebony wood is not low.
