The wood whisperer made it look so easy I decided to give it a go. I don`t know why but it was much harder than I thought and know I`m building a drum sander just to re finish it. Anyway here it is

Welcome to the club. I too would love to know what wood you used in this.

Nice job and unique. Have to ask same question as the guys above … what kind of wood is it?

Hi everyone, thanks for the kind comments. The woods I used are from Northern Argentina, one is called Red Anchico and the other one I think is called Loro Negro (black parrot) but I’m not very sure about this one because my wife threw away the receit I had with the names.

Which is why I usually write on the ends of boards and smooth areas of my turning stock what it is and how much I paid for it. If I should need the piece with the writing on, I re-write the name and figures on it (the same price) hey, I gotta make a profit too! If I got it free I don’t put the price down. Depending on the receipt is risky as they may accumulate and I forget which goes with what, or they get trashed like what happened to you.

Bearpie, I should follwo your advice and write down the type of wood on the wood. As for the price, since I dont sell anything I do I prefer not remembering what I`m spending on lumber cause it would make my wallet cry,

No matter what it cost, you still made a wonderful CB with beautiful color that will last a long time. You should be proud!
