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. Monkeypod has colors that are a smooth blend of Hawaiian Koa and Chocolate Heart, lending a truly superior touch to your projects. As the wood is open grained, a pore sealer can be helpful in the finishing process. This bowl blank has a rough edge with a knot on the opposite face of the numbers.
