Holy Cow! Asian Satinwood(Pyinma) is beautiful!

I had never heard of this wood before and it came included in a variety pack from woodcraft.

Does anyone know why its not more popular?!

From what I can find, its more common to find it in a curly/quilted figure than Maple.

Anyways, it was super easy to turn and polished really well.
The finish is a CA/BLO combo with a Pure Badger Hair knot.

Now to find two pen blanks to make the Razor handle and shaving stand….

Beautiful turning you highlighted the grain well.
