Turning Kentucky Coffee Bean
Hey guys. Just started making pens and posted about PSI a couple days ago. So far, I have made one out of Pauduk, Curly Maple, and a couple of Acrylics. No problems until today. I have gone through 3 blanks of Kentucky Coffee Bean. It is a hard wood with some soft qualities. It is certainly not hard maple. Each time I get to the final dimensions with the skew, it blows up and back to square one. Has anyone had any luck turning this wood? Also looking for ideas on another woods that look great on a turned pen.
