I came across some Long Leaf Pine logs for free and been practicing with my hollowing tools and can say turning pine is both a blessing and a curse. The curse is where went thru side of a vessel and now they got no top!

Only reason am posting hope guy from GA turning pressure treated pine will have a look. I ain’t one to talk but you all know who I am talking about! Hope to impress him so much he will go out and cut down a tree to get some LLP if cannot find any on the ground for free.

In any event hope he stops messing with that nasty Pressure Treated Pine.

One thing you never worry about turning green/wet Long Leaf Pine is knots or pith. Also may encounter some juvenile wood seen at bottom of this end grain turned vase is next to the pith. Not sure if can turn away the torn end grain or smooth out that juvenile wood once wood reaches EMC.
