I was asked to make a shawl pin out of a dark wood. I had just gotten some African Blackwood in and was eager to try it out, so on to the lathe it went.
It was really a pleasure to turn. The work went easily and the wood buffed extremely well. I put some tung oil on it and it really seemed to revive the natural oils in the wood to a high sheen. I’m looking forward to working with it some more :) Thanks for looking.
