Good job you don’t have quick drying varnish.
Looks great. Where do you get red ivory from?

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.

Now that is a great turning and the Finial is outstanding. Great selection of wood.

I have never heard of Red Ivory, where did you get it at?

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