So I apologize if this topic comes up so often your tired of seeing it...... but Do you have a favorite source for buying exotic turning stock? I've been using Woodcraft and Cormark. Any other favorite places to go? Thanks
Here is one I finished a couple weeks ago on the Ringmaster. Has yellowhart, padauk, cherry, and riverbirch. The paduak bleed over when the lacquer was applied. The padauk has open endgrain pores and if you want a mirror finish it would take a lot more work.
Just finished this one. Made of exotic wood scraps and the background dark wood stripes is Burnt Poplar, I finally found a use for the small board I had. I had forgotten that one of the dark red woods drives my allergy nuts. Even tho I used protection, it got me again. Its 8"x10"

I wanted to show you guys one of my projects that I am proudest of. My grandson loved firetrucks and I decided to make him one for Christmas a couple of years ago. I did some research on the web and found out that there is no standard type firetruck. When one is ordered, they get what they want on it for specific purposes. So I took some things from many pictures and made one up. I used Padouk, Yellow hart, curly Maple, Mahogany and what ever small scraps of exotic wood I could include. I wanted it to be played with, so I have a hose with a hand crank and an extending ladder. I turned the fire extinguishers on the rear and each gauge is a hole drilled out and filled with maple. My grandson loved it then and still does. He played with it a lot then, but has now moved on to the computer, soccer, bicycles, etc. Now it is in a special place in his room to keep it safe.
