Materials Used in Ornamental Turning


Patagonian Rosewood

Ornamentally Turned Objects

This is an excellent wood for ornamental turning.

It is not as hard as other woods (Janka hardness = 11,990 N), but it to hold shapes very well and the ornamental turning cuts show well.

Ornamental Turning Notes

Nothing of note in particular for this wood.


Finishing this may be necessary to bring out the beauty of the wood. Without a finish, it may look a bit dry. I use Tried & True’s Original Wood Finish.
