Are these type of wood good for fretboards

That's not at all what I thought this thread was gonna be about judging by the title

As long as no corners are cut, I can't see why they wouldn't be usable. It looks pretty nice, too.

I would be skeptical of the varied densities. It could cause an "uneven" tone across the fretboard. I have no proof of this whatsoever, it's just my first thought.

And the second piece is tiny.

It's called pale moon ebony, you can google it. I haven't heard of people using it for fretboards so I wouldn't

I'm sure I've seen it used as either a fretboard or a neck on projectguitar before.
