While I have not used this specific black palm blank from Rockler, I have made several pens using a crosscut black palm in the past.
Native to Southeast Asia, the Black Palm produces dense, stringy wood that may vary in color but is widely known for its distinctive speckled, streaky grain pattern and color contrast.


Made from inlace acrylester, it is easy to turn (similar to acrylic) and can be polished to a gleaming finish. Additionally, these blanks are crosscut along the length of the pen, which results in a stunning alternation of the porous end grain and speckled long grain.
It's stringy quality makes it somewhat difficult to turn and therefore it is not recommended for novice woodturners. Black palm can be a challenge to turn, but these blanks are resin-stabilized, and with sharp tools, can form a stunning, one-of-a-kind pen.


My best result came by over-filling the inlay, using cutting oil and hand cutting the excess material, then sanding flush.
