A wood called bocote.

I made another peppermill for my dad (another belated birthday present), this time out of bocote.  That’s pronounced either “bow-coat-ee” or “buh-coat-ee”.  It’s a good wood for turning, being close-grained, though it is pretty hard.  But look at the grain!  And “bocote” is fun to say.  Maybe not as much fun as “cocobolo” or “bubinga,” but still more exciting than “oak.”  🙂
