Dark chocolate browns and iridescent golden tones swirl together with black striping to set apart this truly stunning turning wood. It finishes beautifully and turns easily, making it a natural choice for turners! These turning blanks are freshly cut and have been wax sealed. They are ideal for twice turning as the wood dries quickly when roughed out into 3/4" to 1" thick walled bowls and then allowed to air dry in a paper bag for a couple of months. Occasional checking may be present and pieces with sapwood may have pin holes. After they are dry, you can finish turn them to your desired wall thickness and then turn to a satin smooth finish. Monkeypod has colors that are a smooth blend of Hawaiian Koa and Chocolate Heart, lending a truly superior touch to your projects.
