I lightened the pic a bit always have difficulty with pics of deep colour and grain. Lucked out yesterday a fine furniture maker mate of mine sold me to die for Huon Pine Burl, Red Mallee Burl, some Macassar Ebony, Figured Myrtle, highly figured Blackwood and a block of 50000 yrs Ancient River Red Gum ( he buys it for joinery pieces he said he is the only one he knows that does, some Wenge plus other pieces. His work is outstanding using exceptional materials. He is in the process of moving from Commercial premises to his home with a huge shed when he rang me I was on chauffeur duty with the family squeezed in an hour for me. Such an abundance of excitement.

All the Rosewoods have features Honduran moody with sapwood detail sapwood stirs the imagination, I am thinking just straight turning for a while I have box full of other kits I might break out to try as well.

Catching the enthusiasm on the site with interest.

Kind regards Peter.

Very nice wood Peter. I think I would have used it on a nice fountain pen or top end roller ball as I believe that wood deserves something special.. But nice all the same..
