I picked this blank from WC the other day. I really liked the grain pattern. I just finished with Danish Oil. Still going to put some wipe on poly and wax.

Topamax:
First I miss typed. The wood is Jobillo (Ho be yo) from Central America has a light reddish brown heartwood streaked with sharply constasting dark reddish to black band that resemble burn marks. This wood is hard and heavy but turns well and will take a fine polish. It’s a member of the cashew family produces stunning turned pieces because of contrasting nature of its stripes. This is what I founf when I looked it up on the web.
