Ornamentally Turned Objects

This is an excellent wood for ornamental turning, and gets used when the color is need for the piece being made (e.g., multi-layered pieces).

It is quite hard (Janka hardness = 14,370 N), so expect to resharpen often. That hardness enables it to hold shapes very well. It has a natural beauty, but in a simple kind of way that allows for the ornamental turning cuts to show well.
