Suspended vessel turned from Mexican Rosewood and African Blackwood

October 20, 2020

The hollowed Mexican Rosewood (Bocote) vessel has been suspended between an African Blackwood finial base and taller finial crown. The dramatic figure and color of the Mexican Rosewood (not actually a true member of the rosewood family) is highlighted by the extreme darkness of the beautiful African Blackwood (a true rosewood--a member of the family Dalbergia). Finial turning takes patience, sharp tools, and an ideal turning wood. African Blackwood is the premier detail wood available to woodturners.
