Lychee is a fruit tree found in Hawaii and in many parts of SE Asia. Unless this wood is mostly dry, it can be unstable resulting in surface checks, cracks or bowing. Our supply of Lychee comes from logs that have cured for at least 3 years before being milled into slabs and left to air-dry. They're stable at this point and can be milled into various turning blanks. Lychee is a dense wood and workability can be challenging so make sure your tools are at their sharpest. This wood is easy to turn and produces a fine sheen with both water and oil-based finish or lacquer.
