    Default Blackwood, moose n maple

    Hello all,

    Its been slow going here for the last month or two, just moved and am trying to get my shop back in order.
    Here's one I turned in Dec right as I was packing up the shop, got it finished up and ready to go last week. Nice having the lathe set up again.

    Stacked African blackwood, moose antler and curly maple with a 24mm finest fan from TGN.

    That's a sweet turning. Maple flows into the antler shading rely nicely and the black cap, perfect..
    Well done.

    The choice on that knot really made a difference; had it been any old badger knot it would not have looked as good.
