Couldn't have picked it better myself
Bought this lumber for a couple of Christmas projects. What I received is perfect. No knots or blemishes. It is straight as an arrow and beautiful. Thank you

Limba Black
I knew nothing about Limba Black, mine came more green than black - it is still nice in its own way and will have fun with it - it is hard buying exotic wood for the first time by a picture of one sample on a monitor. I am not sure if i would recommend Limba Black yet.

Black Limba
Ordered Tuesday evening, arrived at my door in Las Vegas Friday afternoon! Thought that was pretty quick and I was very happy, then I opened the box... Wow! What gorgeous wood! All boards were perfect! Black Limba needs to have the ribbons of Black running through it and all I can say is every board has a "white" area and a striped with black! They are beautiful!

Black Limba Review
Gorgeous piece of black limba, nice and straight. Should yeild 4 very attractive fretboards for future guitar projects I'll be working on.

Nicely planed, dense wood. Not much black.
I ordered black limba. I got black limba, but only about a 2 inch strip right along one of the edges. This section of wood could almost have been full white limba if the black section had been trimmed off. Not quite what I was expecting, I was expecting more black on it, especially because of the picture. I am using it for a guitar back, and after deciding I didn't want a skunk stripe down the middle, I now have a full white, black limba back. Don't care much about the lack of black/figure, i am more interested in tonal quality, but would have been more striking with black/figure on it. Came as one full board when delivered. I would still recommend woodworkers as a supply entity because they were very quick with shipping, and the packaging was great. I would also still recommend the black limba(korina) because it is easy to work with and very dense.

Very nice figure
This wood has great color and pattern, and will look marvelous on any project. The reason I gave it only 3 stars was that the figured portion is only about 60% of the board running lengthwise, unlike the website photo The remainder was nearly white. This fact makes it a very expensive choice.

I got some sweet pieces from ww source for 6 different guitars. They picked out some good stuff. I use only lacquer finish on guitar bodies and the black streaks in limba look really good that way.
