The pecan dish was turned today and the Iron wood was turned a few weeks ago. The Pecan wood came from Jim Jakosh while he was in Arizona. The Iron wood came from Tyskvinna.

That looks good, I have never used ironwood, but many members say how hard it is, how is it to turn?

Great turnings, Rick. Keep up the good work. How did the toolrest work with the steel pin in it?
