Woodturning – Curupay – South American rosewood.

Hello and welcome! In this weeks video I will be using a woodturning lathe to make a shapely bowl from a pretty piece of Curupay, also known as Patagonian Rosewood.

This wood was very kindly sent to my by Dave the @Mole Valley Maker who has also turned a piece and will be releasing a video of the process.

This was a very tough wood which put up a bit of a fight and I sanded a lot, especially the end-grains inside which i’m not going to show you as I didn’t film all 45 minutes of it, you’re welcome.

Sealed with shellac and polished with Yorkshire Grit original and microfine.

I’m not fully sold on the foot, I left the mortice in but I may remove it in the near future, Shouldn’t take too long to reshape but if you would like to see how I do that, let me know in the comments.
