« Part 73: Tea Lite Challenge Part 74 of Journey into Woodturning series Part 75: Peppermill »

This project was based strictly on turning a wood I have never heard of. Which seems to be the case with a majority of the wood I turn. This Chechen looked beautiful in the picture and did not disappoint. It reminds me of the Patagonia Rosewood I turned awhile back.

This wood turned wonderfully. The database listed the wood at a Janka scale hardness of about 10K newtons. I feel it’s a little harder.

I don’t know if I just got lucky or every piece of Chechen is like this one. There were so many colors, reds, oranges, purples, golds, dark browns. The grain figuring creating so many patterns and shapes.

I am very pleased with the 9×3 salad bowl look of this wood and the design and shape too. What do you think?

Here’s this weeks video: Chechen Bowl

Wow! I don’t think I’ll ever be able to make something like that. The styling is simple but really nice.
