    Mimosa

    The lacquer is barely dry on this vase; approximately 12" high.

    I didn't know woodworkers even worked with Mimosa. That is BEAUTIFUL. When I was a little girl we had a big mimosa tree (or at least it looked big to me) in our front yard. Now that I'm in a milder climate, I'm going to plant one next year.....

    Super looking wood, Am I right? did I hear a while back, the refer to Mimosa as "Silkwood" perhaps a smarter than me knows the answer...

    How was it to turn, Is the coloring normal?
