Tamboti, Mopani … jeepers, I never thought I’d hear anyone in LA use those woods! They’re quite local to Southern Africa really. Nice result, very interesting.

Nice work!
I love off-center turning. I hate off-center sanding though. That’s the scary stuff for me.

Jim, I don’t have a photo, but I used the Robert Sorby Eccentric Chuck.

Turbo: I have a thing for woods exotic to LA… sometimes they show up as ornamental trees, but most of the time I have to source them elsewhere.

nerd: you’re absolutely correct about that. My knuckles are still recovering. I kept thinking that I must be doing something wrong.

Thanks woodman and cliff!
