This Madrone turning stock has cream to pinkish brown color! Dark red streaks might be present in some pieces. Madrone is a Pacific NW hardwood that is very easy to work with, turning well & taking a high polish. Wood was freshly cut in December 2021, wax sealed, and contains residual moisture. Twice turning rather than air drying is recommended due to checking that occurs in this species. This species has a shelf life of 30 days. If you're willing to twice turn, it's an amazing wood! Also, you can turn creative and unique pieces that will morph into flowing lines as your bowl dries.
