Vessel turned from East Indian Rosewood, Satinwood, and African Blackwood (#2)

August 21, 2022

East Indian Rosewood is a true rosewood (family Dalbergia), long used in furniture making and other fine woodworking. The wood is very dark, often with brown and purple flashes of figure. It is an excellent turning wood and takes a truly superb finish. The top of this vessel has been made from a piece of Satinwood, a gorgeous, golden wood from Sri Lanka, and the finial from African Blackwood, like East Indian Rosewood, a member of the Rosewood familt. The contrast in colors gives a dramatic quality to the piece.
