I’ve worked several woods considered rare, but mostly in smaller pieces. I’ve used kingwood, koa, gaboon ebony, african blackwood, among others. Mostly I enjoy getting turning blanks and making tool handles or using larger pieces as fretboards on my guitars. I have a goal to at least use each of every kind of wood I can get my hands on. I just love trying different kinds to see how they work, look, etc.
