This hollow form is turned from a piece of rosewood I received from John Jordan. Thanks John!

Comments and critiques are welcomed and appreciated.

Very nice Joe! What do you do to decide on the shape of your turnings?

Nice vessel, how did you like working with this wood? I picked up 8 pieces from my supplier and loved working with it. I find it extremely hard and dense and wipe on poly took forever to dry. Did you find the same problem with your piece? See my vase on my post. Only turned the one piece of rosewood so far.

Thanks for the comments. The rosewood cut like a dream. I agree on the finish, it took forever to dry. I just assumed the wood itself was still too wet. But after a couple of weeks, it still acts the same. The vessel is approximately 4.5 inches tall by 4.25 inches wide.

Nice score from John Jordan and beautiful use of the wood. I heard a rumor once that it is an insult to the turner to stick your finger down the inside of the vessel to feel wall thickness and smoothness unless you’ve paid him/her for it. Any truth to that?

A voluptious beauty! This reminds me of a woman posed for a portrait while wearing gown with a draped neckline. Very regal and elegant.
