The Arecaceae family includes the monocot palm. Essentially, the wood is a fibrous bundle of tiny straws. With its densely packed black fibers and lighter-colored, less dense substance all around, Black Palm is strong and unyielding.
The black bundles are packed closely together like the termination of a steel cable as seen in the end grain. In the wood of palms, there are no discernible growth rings. Although the wide grain of this wood is typical for this wood, many people mistake it for checking because of the look of the fibers.
Black palm is frequently used for walking sticks, handles, picture frames, boxes, and more. It takes a good polish. Our stock is surfaced on at least two sides and dried.
