Dose any one know where I can get some 3×3x9 exotic wood turning stock? I want to make some pepper grinders as gifts and would like to use something other than walnut or oak. I was thinking of using cocobolo, bacote, king, olive, or something similar. Any suggestions? thanks

I would definately try BlueStingrayBoots’ Texas Ebony or mesquite. He can cut them to your specifications. The wood is saved from being destroyed so it’s not only RARE and beautiful, it’s a green way to get wood. I bought some several years ago and people are always amazed at it’s beauty. The chocolate wood has golden yellow graining in it and it glistens in the sunshine.

(No, he’s not paying me to say this.)

But maybe he’ll send me more wood!
