Most of the woods on this page have been "stabilized"  in order to bring out the depth of figure and to harden the wood. Stabilized woods will not shrink or expand. They are also not affected by rain.

Giraffe Bone.

This could easily be the new "Ivory". Left photo showing the "bark". Right photo showing below the "bark". 

It is much easier to maintain than ivory. It feels like ivory in the hand, but warmer and not as slippery. Absolutley gorgeous.

Stabilization is a seventeen hour process that begins with four hours of vacuum to draw out air and moisture. The vacuum is slowly released and a 110 degree mixture of monomer resins and acrylics are introduced and then set to a pressure of 4000psi for seven hours. This pressure is slowly released and the wood is autoclaved, (heat treated) , for four more hours in order to activate the hardener.
