Very nice, and very big.
Will it be more prone to cracking since the wood is wet?
I’ve always bought my lumber premilled is why I’m asking.

nice turnings. I have not gotten larger than “about 14 on my lathe and that was a bit scary at first.

Very nice big chunks of wood…...... Will make great platters for your students. Turning them green might lead to some interesting shapes…warps !
