mora turning stock
This was the most beautiful wood I have ever turned, and I like experimenting with everything -- zebrawood, persian silk tree, avocado, orange tree, willow, root of a camellia plant, root of rosebush.... Dark, full of character, hard and solid, it turned and polished like a dream.

It the color and character of the wood varies. Some pieces are amazing others rather bland. It's best go to a store and select it yourself rather than ordering it. Nice wood to work with.

Has nice grain color but the texture sanded to a 600 still has 100's of tiny holes.

I bought this with the intent to use it for a forearm nose piece and a pistol grip cap for my weatherby rifle. Expecting to be getting a block of wood with some character to it, I would have got same results out of plain walnut. Although the wood was easy to work with. Not to happy.

One side block was big knot.  Did not want for turning. Just one piece or scrap.

I recently bought a wood lathe but don't know what chuck to get so I can start turning bowls and such.?

BEST ANSWER: A scrool chuck is one thing that you can use, look for one that has interchangeable jaws & a wood screw to start with. You can use a face plate if you have one, it was used before the scrool chuck came in use. Look to pay about $100. 00 to $150.00 for a good scrool chuck .The Nova SC3is one that I have.
