Ebony used to be used for piano keys - the black ones of course.  Ivory veneer was used for the white keys. 
Ebony and ivory, live together in perfect harmony,
Side by side on my piano keyboard, oh Lord, why don't we?

(Paul McCartney and Stevie Wonder 1982)
Under bark there's boards and beams, somewhere in between.
Cuttin' while its green, through a steady sawdust stream.
I'm chasing the sawdust dream.

Ebony is still the fretboard material of choice in high end guitars, especially classical guitars. I'm sure that holds true for stringed instruments like violins as well. As it gets rarer, ebony migrates toward the more expensive instruments. Some cheap guitars have the fretboard dyed to look like ebony. They go well with the jewelry that makes your skin turn green😊

Years ago I've read in Fine Woodworking magazine that a guy went to get a quilted mahogany in Africa saying that the log worth $25,000 !! . So big that even the bulldozer was not strong enough to pull it, they had to dynamite in half. Floated on a river to the mill, got it saw and send to US . Went all in slicing veneer. Quite an expedition

Wow, that's what I love about the forum - I post something and you all teach me something!

So I went digging around in the sawdust and found a small sliver of a piece.  I promise to bring it to the pig roast this year.  Then I have to figure out something to make out of it!

Doc  -   Jane, the sawyer's partner, did scoop up as much sawdust as she could to use it as fill in something.

Good that you are bringing a piece to the Pig Roast.  We can fool Cedarman with it.

You are going to have a hard time parting any money from Cedarman.  He is tighter than Dick's Hat Band.
