That is another beautiful piece Eduardo. I love the look of that wood. What kind of finish did you use in it?

This is a gorgeous turning. I have never had the opportunity to work with jacaranda but it has beautiful color and grain patterns. Posts like this make me wish I knew how to turn. I am sure you get a great deal of personal satisfaction from creating beautiful pieces such as this.
