This one is made of avodire and bloodwood. It was dificult to turn. The avodire is quite a bit softer than the bloodwood and tears easily.

That is so pretty I’m not sure it would even hurt it someone hit you in the head with it. Well done.

+1 on the cool joinery at the neck. Darned if I can figure how you did it . . . can you explain?

Awesome looking.

I added another picture. Glue up your handle stock then glue your head stock around it.

Im with judgesawdust? It appears that the head is all one piece….or was it glued up around the handle prior to turning?
