Tagua Nuts (Vegetable Ivory) - Woodworking
Tagua nuts come from the ivory palm and share the characteristics of ivory: they are white, very hard, and take a polish well. They are particularly suitable for turning to make chess pieces, finials, and drawer pulls.

They hold carving detail well and are superb for decorative plugging. They can be sawn into slices and cut into intricate shapes on a scroll saw. Although very hard, they take stain well. The nuts vary from 1 1/2" to 2" long with a fairly flat void in the center.

Approximately 10 tagua nuts to the pound. Instructions for working them are included.
