Louro Preto *PIC*

Barbara Gill, Remlik VA
>When Pete Kekel found out that Ruth Niles was driving down from the VA Symposium to meet Carole V. and me at my house for several days of fun he sent along a nice block of Louro Preto. Carole has posted picture of what she turned from one of her pieces. I turned both of my pieces. The box has one coat of oil on it and is buffed. The hollow form is just buffed. I was going to use a blackwood finial but it looked brown next to the black of the Louro Preto. So, I used holly for the finial and painted it black with gesso. This wood was a dream to hollow.
