    1. Hi Patrick, Thanks for your comment. I turned this bowl some time ago but from memory the iroko was not an easy wood to work with. As you found it is quite hard and abrasive making cutting difficult. The interlocking grain was sometimes a problem but can be coped with using sharp tools and does produce a nice effect in the grain.
