Thank you Steve! I was happy to see so far this year that I'm not the only beech dai, there is one other guy, Andrew, who is turning out some impressively thin shavings with a beech dai.

I'll keep the rosewood in mind for next year, if it grips the blade better than bubinga it's likely to be a winner.

Only trouble I have with the dark woods is that it is very hard to see the blade protrusion, where with beech or oak it's extremely obvious especially with a white background.
