Fancy Stuff For Woodturners
Zygia racemosa - what we have comes from South America, although it would be easy to
confuse it with several other species and sometimes gets mis-labeled. The golden
dominant color is streaked with a reddish-purple veining that really makes a pretty
turning. Imagine a peppermill or bowl out of some of the bigger pieces.
A finished bowl, turning
squares, and a look at some
of the patterns caused by the
darker streaking color.
