    Cuban Mahogany

    Here is another HF out of Cuban Mahogany. It is 4" tall and 61/2" across. It is also finished with 6 or 7 coats of lacquer. Again sorry for the pictures as WE were in a hurry.

    Another beauty, Bernie.
    Dang, you're getting good at this.
    Why has common sense
    become so uncommon?

    Nice looking turning, Bernie.

    Where did you get Cuban Mahogany? I realize it grows in the US but from what I know, it's extremely rare. I'd love to get enough to make furniture from it.

    Thanks everyone.

    Mike I got this out of Flordia. I understand it grows down there pretty good. I am not sure about lumber but I know the stuff for turning is pretty pricey. That piece alone was about $48 or so. The NIP was $67 shipped.

    Good to see you're finally giving the Monster toys a workout. Very nice hollow form, Bernie. It looks like you turned it in an end grain orientation. Is that correct?

    Yep I did Vaughn. I got the pith just slightly off center on the bottom. About 1/4" off .
