sandalwood-from-sawdusfactory (another pen)

This was my first turning of the new year so I decided to make it a wood that I haven't worked with before. This sandalwood blank had a nice streak of darker wood running through it (heart wood, perhaps?), it's one that Sawdustfactory sent in a wood swap a while back.

The wood felt so nice to the touch, I decided not to use CA on it -- just the simple PPP wax stick finish.

Smelled great turning it, didn't it? Looks nice.

That bowl was perfect right up until that last cut...

Thanks, yes it really filled the garage with its aroma. (Which is another reason why I didn't really want to do the CA finish, I have no love for that smell!)
