    Pullman Tamper - Custom Wood

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    About 3 years ago I got a Pullman Deluxe tamper in Jarah which is a lovely bit of kit, but with the new Nexus on offer I couldnt resist.

    But to make my new Nexus tamper really special I imported a piece of black & white ebony.

    So this chunk of timber has now been sent to Greg yesterday and I will post back with some photos of the final product.

    Oh my various gods!

    My Huon Pine is nice, but that is just... wild. Looking forward to seeing the finished product.

    :o :o My jaw literally dropped when I saw that! Cant wait to see the real thing in the flesh (err.... timber). That is just incredible! Words fail me. Perhaps a leopard walked past as the plant sprouted or something. Seriously that is one amazing lump of tree!

    Beautiful timber.... 8-)

    I saw something similar during travels and stays throughout The Solomons; the island was called Rendova I think. They also used to have the pure black and very hard Ebony growing there too - Also a beautiful timber....

    Actually a pair of a kind! But yeah, even they have their own characteristics separate from each other. Nice! But I wonder if these are prone to hairline cracks.

    Re: Pullman Tamper - Custom Wood

    Patterning by its very nature is often a result of differing characteristics of the wood which may have different densities. Compared to a fairly plain hardwood, yes; but given due care, not exposing it to a wide range of temperatures / humidities etc its unlikely to be too much of a problem.

    So far so good. I think that being that Ebony is such a dense and hard timber the likelyhood of this occuring is reduced.
