    I got mine today also. Carole did a great job! I really like the vase she showed. Carole is the vase pattern in a book somewhere I can buy?

      I know my piece probably didn't add too much for folks already doing bowls, but I tried to give an overview, and answer the commonly asked questions, especially for folks who haven't yet give it a try. Hard to write something meaningful in only 500 words, but good discipline.

      As for the vase, just keep cutting the blank in half and inserting another strip of wood until you get to 16 segments. Then glue that onto an additional piece of wood and it will give you that pattern. Make 2 of them, one face up, the other face down, and you get a vase. If you haven't played around with 2 or 3 sets of rings, it's really a lot of fun, and the results can be amazing.

        I couldn't resist (too long since any new toys) and ordered a blacklight flashlight from Amazon--same price as Harbor Freight. Should be here Tuesday--can't wait to see all the glue spots I've missed.

        If you google "Moradillo" you'll get more information than you'll ever need. It looks like it will work up beautifully.

        The first picture is Wenge, pronounced WHEN-ghay or WHEN-Gii. It is a very hard wood. It’s splintery and very hard to cut. When finished, it is almost black. I use it when I need a black wood for Intarsia. I do not know anything about the other wood.

        I have a new neighbor who did a lot of woodworking in the past but had to give it up because of allergies. He sold his shop equipment and wood stockpile when he moved here, however he kept a few pieces of fancy wood and showed them to me. The first one (First Photo) he had no idea what it was. It is...
