Identifying ebony


Recommended Posts

If you have a loupe, or other magnifier, you should be able to tell any wood from plastic by looking at the end grain. On a bow frog, that would obviously be at the back end. But you might get a better look by checking the wood inside the ferrule, since it probably would have no finish on it.

I'm going to go try that...

...well, it's hard to see any pores in ebony, but I was just using magnifying reading glasses. Maybe if you scrape the end grain inside the ferrule a bit. It wouldn't show there.
