Turning ebony drawer pulls?

Ron Berlier, Sacramento, CA
>Hello all!

I'm interested in turning a few drawer pulls and making them from ebony, the expensive stuff )-:

I would like to know if this a difficult wood to work with, what would be a good turning speed and what might the special problems, if any, be turning/working with ebony.

TIA, from a VERY inexperienced turner -
Ron
