Great looking board, Jaime. Does the algarrobo have another name? Your choice of the contrasting wood is flawless. I love your turned works also. They are great! Would you be turning (pun intended) out more?

LittlePaw, Thanks for yours nice words. “Algarrobo” is an exotic wood of my country (Colombia), is very very hard and heavy, it produce a fruit called “algarroba”, this fruit is sweept but the odor is featid, is used for the floor in the houses, the colour is very nice. The scientific name is Ceratonia Siliqua.

Very nice work. This almost looks like a quilt pattern. Did you have trouble sanding this piece evenly? Whenever I use a very hard wood next to a soft wood, like pine, there is usually a valley where the soft wood lies. Great looking piece though. Thanks for sharing.
