Default Diamond Emperor

I purchased some of Tim McKenzie's diamond dust blanks and had the opportunity to turn one today. I found it to turn very easily with no excessive dulling of my tools. I used a roughing gouge to turn the blank. The aluminite is soft and did not offer much resistance. It does have incredible chatoyance, but the photos don't do it justice. Finished with MM, Scratch Free and Hut's Plastic Polish. Overall, very pleased with the blank and will order more. Great job, Tim.

C & C welcome
