This is the first time I have ever turned this wood. Very hard material, turned clean has great color and took the finish nicely. I hope to buy a large piece and turn a bowl out of it sometime.

I like the copper color pen and pencil kits that the owner chose to have these made from. The copper complements the wood very nice. The black works well too.

Several coats of CA and polished up from there.

Thanks for looking!

You Australian guys have this in your back yard! Lucky you to have such great looking wood to work with!!!

Brett thanks again for the photo tips! I tried the “diffuse” with the light this time. Paper over the flash.

Looking real good there James! Diffused or not, this is a fabulous set! The wood looks amazing and the set is very elegant.

I’m glad that I could have been of some assistance. Take care buddy!

Great looking pens—very nicely done.

Roger & John,
Thanks for taking a look at this set. I no longer have this set i gave them to their new owner and I miss looking at the cool pattern in the wood. I will be doing more thats for sure!
