Also known as "Pau Ferro," Bolivian Rosewood features a deep, chocolate brown tone with hints of purple, interlaced with even darker brown or black growth lines. A dense, but easily worked species native to Central and South America, it has a scent reminiscent of Walnut. The grain varies from straight to irregular and the wood is oily to the touch. Often used for the curving sides of guitars, Bolivian Rosewood steam bends nicely and will take an exceptional finish. All boards are machined S4S, and are planed to 1/8" and 1/4" thicknesses, relieving your planer of excess work. You also won't have to worry about chipout, which is difficult to prevent when planing thin stock. Thin boards are ideal for edging, veneering, inlay, marquetry, sides for decorative boxes, bending stock, bent laminations and whatever else your imagination can dream up!Common Names: Bolivian Rosewood, Morado, Pau Ferro.Botanical Classification: Machaerium scleroxylonTree is Native To: Bolivia and Brazil.Average Dried Weight: 53 lb/ft.

With the six jigs in this kit, you'll be able to shape and sharpen all your knives, scissors, shears, draw knives and axes, as well as short chisels and carving tools. Each jig perfectly replicates the edge angle so you can sharpen faster than ever. The jigs in this kit work with the T-7 and T-4 Tormek Sharpening Systems (35254 and 53332, sold separately) as well as the older T-3 system. The Knife Jig (SVM-45) works to sharpen most knives, including carver's draw knives. Long knives need to be stiff, and the minimum blade length is 2-3/8'' (60mm)The Long Knife Jig (SVM-140) is suitable for long and flexible knives. The jig's 5-1/2'' (140mm) width stabilizes a thin blade. Requires minimum blade length of 6-5/16'' (160mm)The Scissors Jig (SVX-150) is for scissors of all sizes as well as shears. It is also suitable for portable electric hand planer bladesThe Short Tool Jig (SVS-32) is for straight-shanked carving gouges and V-tools down to 1-3/4'' (45mm) long.
