The problem with ebony is that it is not as easy to come by as an oak tree would be. For this reason, ebony will cost a good deal more than oak will. An ebony desk will be quite expensive to buy if the whole desk is made of this wood. While oak is just as durable. it is also much more affordable. Due to the quality of the grain of the wood, oak has always been accepted as a preferable wood for furniture building.
