Gabon Ebony Slip-Ons
Gabon Ebony is awesome and it sucks at the same time. It's extremely difficult to work with when it's this dry. These set of cups continued to crack and shrink even after they had been twice turned in order to let the wood warp, crack and shrink before I turned the final cup shape. I've got a new UV curing system that will hopefully take care of this issue as it will seal the inside and outside within just a few minutes rather than waiting days for lacquer to cure. But I figured I'd share the pics anyway even though they're not the final product for my customer.
