That had to make for a good day.  Was wondering how the different woods you will be using will turn on the Lathe?

Some of them turn great, others I haven't tried yet. 

The retail blocks are sold for the purpose so you'd expect them to turn well and I haven't been dissapointed yet.

The butternut is great, like walnut.  Unfortunately due to some beetle or blight butternut is getting increasingly hard to find.

The mahogony should turn very well, but deserves a special and well planned project.

The 5 mystery boards are a mystery, but they were free.
