Texas Ebony

- Aj2

+1 although that’s pretty high up if it’s northwestern AZ for Texas Ebony but stranger things have happened for sure. That’s what it looks like to me. It’s in the ironwood family but I don’t think it sinks like ironwood but it’s heavier than mesquite so not sure Jack if it’s heavy cause it’s wet or heavy cause it’s texas Ebony.

FYI, those leaves are either really small and the pic is up very close or those trees in the first pic aren’t the same as where those leaves came from.

With that said, I suggest making new lathe tool handles with that lot Jack. The stuff is amazing.
