Pete Kekel - Louro Preto *PIC*

Carole Valentine
>Pete, this is a small piece of the Louro Preto Ruth got from you. Never heard of the wood before but it turns beautifully. It reminds me of a rosewood - dense and sort of oily. This piece has one coat of Waterlox on it (no buffing yet) which darkened the light wood a bit, but it finishes so well it could have just been buffed. Very easy to hollow cleanly as well. The dust gave Ruth some problems, but it did not bother me much.
