We are in port for once, and I asked one of local employees, if it was possible to find ebony down here in Nigeria.
He investigated a little, and returned and told me it was possible, but it was kind of expensive.
I asked how much, and he said that a plank was approximately 30 U$D.
Now the thing is, I have no idea of the width, thickness nor the length of this plank, but I figured that forking out 30 $ couldn't matter a whole lot, if I get some authentic ebony.
So the Christmas part is me having the butterfly feeling in my stomach like when I was a child and eagerly awaited Christmas eve with the opening of the presents.
I will post a picture of the wood once it gets here.
