Fancy Stuff For Woodturners
Brosimum rubescens - from Suriname in South America. This is a very dense satin wood
that really takes a great polish. The wood can dull your tools quickly, but will still cut easily
enough and sands well. Usually used more for accents like finials and collars, or smaller
turnings, this will also make outstanding looking hollow forms, bowls, peppermills, or
whatever direction it takes you.
