Gombeira (Brazilian Ebony)

Latin: SWARTZIA STIPULIFERA Origin: CENTRAL AND SOUTH AMERICA

Gomberia (Brazilian Ebony) is a hard and heavy wood with a straight grain. It gets termed as “Ebony” for its almost black color, but has a very distinct grain pattern that is sometimes comparable to Wenge. When first cut, it takes on a brighter color but after oxidation takes on a darker less bold appearance. The longer you leave the piece to oxidize, the darker it will get before finishing! Gomberia is a dense wood that sands and polishes very nicely.

Common uses: turning, furniture, cabinetwork, violin bows, specialty items, ebony substitute, musical instruments, veneer
