I’ve got a few Pecan logs that I’ve had for over 10 years – so they are dry wood. They are from the branches of a own Pecan tree and they are about 5-6” in diameter and about 12 – 14” long. I just posted a box that I turned from one of the logs – and I’m wondering if I made the best choice as to using the log. I turned this box from the end grain, can I cut it into a blank that would put the end grain on the sides and I would be turning through the long grain? I know I can cut the blank that way, but is that a good choice – or is it better going through the end grain for a box or similar project?
Any input will be appreciated.
