Turning Archive 2006
>Anyone turned Santos Mahogany? A friend gave me an 8/4 board 10" wide and about 4 feet long. I cut a blank out of it today and began turning. Hardest darn stuff I have ever encountered. Sharpening tools FREQUENTLY! It also has been chipping and tearing. It is pretty stuff though, colors from a tan to almost red.
Any suggestions to make working with this stuff easier?
