Turning Archive 2008

My son in law and daughter gave me a very nice piece for Christmas and I turned it yesterday. This is my second piece of Cocobolo to turn. First piece ok. This piece I must have sneezed at least 100 times. I had the shop garage door open and a fan running to extract the trimmings and dust. It and the core turned out beautiful with the most fantastic feel to the finish. I don't know how such hard wood can feel almost soft to the touch.
Well it will be the last of it for me to turn. I gave the piece to my wife.
Good turning and be safe
