I turned a few keychains tonight. Zebrawood, Lignum Vitae, Olive Wood, and Bocote. I love the patterns on the Bocote and Zebrawood, the lignum vitae smells so good, and the olive wood was a PIA to turn!

The olivewood came out really nice. I can’t believe it didn’t explode on the lathe. That was a rough blank

Wiser1934, if you look close, this piece has a nasty split. I was afraid it would explode on the drill press. Otherwise I agree, Olive turns nice

Yes, that nasty split made turning a little difficult, but I did it!!

Very pretty key chains, like the shapes and the grain patterns on your gorgeous woods.

Have your say...
