I found a cool chunk of wood at the local Rockler. In fact the clerk said it was lucky for me that he didn’t see it first. I made this fairly simple shape and finished it with Crystal Coat and wax.

That is a really interesting piece of wood and the turning highlights it nicely.

Very Nice Rikkor…it’s striking! I’ve got a few pieces of this type of ebony as well. Now I know what to do with them.

Thanks for posting it.
