Turning Archive 2004
I just posted Bacote pen blanks for sale on the "Classifieds" board. These are pieces I've cut off that very large board I ordered to turn the stems for the clay goblets.
If you were in the Chat room the night we discussed an alternate wood I could use in place of the cocobolo, you'll remember bacote was one of the suggestions. It's a beautiful wood to turn, has great grain but is not as complimentary to the pottery as was the cocobolo. Next I'll try Kingwood or Rosewood or Cocobolo! : )
