    Way, way too hard and expensive.

    "solid osmium is difficult to machine, form or work."
    Melts at over 3300deg C!

    Here's another Mikro Seiki AX-4G armboard in solid ebony.
    SME fitting with threaded inserts to take the armbase bolts.
    Bronze bush to clamp to the armboard pillar.
    It's extra thick where the armbase fits. You can't have enough lovely sounding ebony.

    Pictured here with the old metal armboard as a stand
