Just back from Hawaii with some wood. I saw some of Gegg Smith work with Koa and Purple Heart so I made this Vase adding Monkeypod for the feature ring. It is 16” tall and 7” wide. Had to rebuild the bottom to save the vase and lost the curve.

Very nice looking turnings. How do you like working with Koa and Monkeypod. I love it and use it most days.

When working with Koa and Monkeypod I found that because of the difference in hardness casused a up and down turning problem. I just had to take small cuts.
