How often do you have to trim the bangs on the one with hair? :)

Serously, these are great looking. I like the shape and the contrast the ebonizing gives.

I’ve never heard of pumaquiro before.

Thanks for posting them.

Beautiful! Is this wood native to Peru? I would like to get some to turn, I will have to check to see if I can order some online.

Again, Very Nice!
