Makore Spindle Blanks
Tieghemella Heckelii. Kiln dried.
All dimensions shown are in inches (length x square).
Also known as African Cherry, Baku or Douka, it is difficult to know whether to describe this as reddish pink or pinky red. Throughout, darker grain lines show.
Makore is fairly light in weight, turns soft although a little dusty yet will take fine detail and sands easily. Works to a very high shine but like many ‘mahaogany’ types, seems to finish best with a high shine product rather than oils.
