Always enjoy turning chinaberry when I can find a nice piece. I rough turned this one and sat it aside for a little over a year to let it stabilize before final turning. This wood came from my father-n-law’s farm back in Alabama. I’ve got a couple of small logs left, but need to get him to keep an eye out for some more of it for me as I really like the rich colors and the fact that it behaves nicely when I’m hollowing it out.
As always, your comments are welcome!
3/22 Edit: added a few more pictures by request.
