I was advised recently to use some Jacaranda for a project. I have been lucky enough to find some at a house that is being renovated. Sadly or otherwise the owners were not there so I left a message saying that I was an amateur wood turner and the logs were going to a good home. Recently I attended the working with wood show in Melbourne. One of the demonstrators recommended Jacaranda as a wood that turn well even if freshly cut. Fear not the ends have been waxed and dated and are now resting in my growing stockpile.
