lachenal74693 Posted December 28, 2019 Share Posted December 28, 2019 (edited) Yesterday, I heard on the radio, a passing reference to lignum vitae, supposedly the hardest known wood. It set me wondering if such extremely hard woods were ever used to fabricate concertina buttons? You can add ebony to that list, I suppose. I've found one reference to lignum vitae buttons, and a couple of references to ebony in 'historical' threads here, but as far as I can see, the lignum vitae usage was a one-off, and no-one has come clean and actually admitted to using ebony... Any expert out there know if these very hard woods were ever used in any quantity for buttons? Thank you.
