  • Toes into the dark side

    I'm in love with the wood on the left. It was in a pen blank grab bag. Please tell me what it is!

    Nice job, off to a great start. The color and grain remind me of bocote.

      Yes, bocote is what it looks like to me too.

        I recently cut some Redbud that looks like that, the lighter colored pen.

            Itís pretty waxy, and smells like cow dung when I started to turn it.

            Pretty sure it's bocote ------- man ---- this is beautiful wood!

                    This is much more affordable than furniture.

                      Warning #1 : it starts off like checkers; it ends up like chess.

                      Warning #2: It starts off costing like a Dollar General; it ends up costing like Cartier diamond.
