One of the members in the wood turning club I'm a member of brought in a bunch of wood to give away and I was able to get a large log of Mimosa. I have never turned any of it before. I cut a chunk off and turned this platter that measures 9" x 2". It was a pleasure to turn but definitely must have some kind of respirator. It had me hacking and coughing before I grabbed the respirator. I sanded to 320 and finished with wipe-on poly. Sanded in between the 4 coats with 1,200 grit them buffed with Carnauba wax. Comments and all feedback welcome. Thanks for looking.
