JETT / ONYX
Black is typically a little harder to turn than other blanks. This one is also somewhat brittle.
Use sharp tools and use water if needed to keep the material cool while working.
Use caution when exiting the blank during drilling as it has a higher likelyhood of chip out.
To avoid chip out, drill short of the end and cut/sand off end to expose the hole.
