Lignus Vitae stoppers and mini-bowl *PIC*

>I turned a couple of bottle stoppers out of Lignum Vitae today. It was my first experience with this amazing wood. Using a skew, the wood practically polished itself! And what beatiful grain! I will definitely be turning more of this delightful wood.

I also turned a miniature bowl. It is between the two stoppers and is 1" in diameter and 3/8" high with 1/16" walls. The finish for the stoppers and the bowl is Hut's Crystal Coat.

Thanks for looking.
