>Hi

These photos are related with Allen's question on Friday, 14 April 2006.
I had failed to upload photos at that time due to file over size, but now solved it.

-------------------

I import and sell African Blackwood(with other African species) in Korea and enjoy woodturning.

I hope these photos could be helpful for Allen about African Blackwood vs Ebony differences.

Left side of photos is 'African Blackwood', right side is 'Ebony'.

"African Blackwood" = "Mpingo" in Swahili language, East Africa.

This 'Mpingo' species has very much defects and so very poor yield ratio & productivity than 'Ebony', and caused higher price-up than 'Ebony'.

I love 'African Blackwood,Mpingo' with its smooth touch feeling.
