Hello Guys and Girls thanks for the comments much appreciated. Murch the Red Ivory is a local indigenous tree and I was lucky to buy a few big pieces 12years ago. Not allowed to harvest with out a permit any more. Regards Tamboti in South Africa Sorry Murch I only use wipe on varnish and leave to dry for 5-6 hrs normally 6 layers.

Beautiful. As a very novice turner this looks extremely difficult.
