Additional Information: A Sycamore tree, often called an American plane tree or buttonwood tree, can grow to a massive size and grows in riparian and wetland areas. Sycamore wood has a rather plain appearance with some flecks. However, when the wood becomes spalted it becomes quite attractive. Spalted wood is wood that is in the process of rotting and has a bunch of fungi in the wood. The fungi makes lines pen-like black lines, in Sycamore, and results in some wild looking figure. The Spalted Sycamore I use has lots of pen-like black lines and came from a saw mill in South-Central Pennsylvania. This particular saw mill owner collects unique primo one-of-a-kind pieces of wild looking woods for me. This particular piece is one of the wildest looking pieces I have ever seen.

Ebony is a super dense black wood that will sink in water. The wood takes on a beautiful smooth finish when polished and can sometimes have brownish colored streaks. Ebony is considered an ornamental wood and historically was used for the black keys of a piano. Cameroon ebony comes from the Western Africa nation of Cameroon and was legally obtained. This wood is one of the most expensive of all woods and complements the Spalted Sycamore nicely.
