Common Name(s): Black Palm, Palmyra Palm Scientific Name: Borassus flabellifer
Black fibers embedded in a lighter tan or light brown colored body. Fibers are more densely packed toward the outside of the tree trunk, becoming more and more sparse toward the center of the tree. The center core of the tree is soft and contains none of the darker vascular bundles that give the wood its characteristic look and hardness. :Black Palm has a medium to fine texture Grain is very straight, and contains no growth rings, knots, or defects. Tends to be quite difficult to work with both machine and hand tools. The hard fibers contrast with the soft body of the wood, and can be brittle and splinter or pull out. Very sharp tools and correct cutting angles are required to get clean results. Applying a hardener or sanding sealer prior to final sanding/machining may help give a more homogenous density and reduce tearout. The lighter colored body of the wood tends to absorb larger quantities of finish, so care must be taken during finishing; a sanding sealer is recommended. Flooring, boatbuilding, walking sticks, knife and tool handles, rafters, furniture, and turned objects.
