Project Information

This is a candlestick I turned from makore. Makore is sometimes called African Cherry. Is is ok to turn but it is kind of soft like butternut. I learned a lesson while turning it. I am hypersensitive to the dust from it and darn near choked to death. It took a good 15 minutes to get my breath back. I wouldn't turn anything from it again.
It is about 9" tall and finished with Tried & True as well. The project is from the book "Shaker Style Wood Projects" by Robert Sonday. There is also a rocking chair project in it that is high on my 'to do' list. I already have enough very dark walnut for two of them. just not the time.
Any comments are always welcome.
