Interesting form. What kind of wood is that? ("rosewood" is about as specific as "wood")

I think that it looks great. Nice job and a great introduction to turning. I would be careful however. Now that you have the bug, there's no turning back. (a little lathe humour there) Keep up the great work and continue to post. Nice piece.

There is a very fine line between a "hobby" and a "mental illness"

Nice piece. One of these days I am going to try turning.
I bought a used lathe about a year ago and it is still sitting under my assembly table.

Did you say tool sale?

Thanks. Any idea what species that is? I have a database with about 125,000 "common" names (and 21,000+ species names), including about 100 with "rosewood" in the name. Yucatan isn't one of them.

I care about this stuff because I maintain a wood ID web site (URL in my signature).

hey Paul, i found the species name for the Yucatan Rosewood. It is "Dalbergia yucatensis" From Central and South America. I hope that helps let me know if you find out more about the wood or need more help. talk to you soon.

Hey Dominic, what a great first piece. You even took the time to decorate it with a nice detail. Be sure to keep it. You will be amazed at how your work changes in a short time. I give away most all of what I turn. I kept my first bowl and about three since then. I've only been turning about 11 months and I can see where each of the bowls I kept improved in some way over the previous ones.
