My friend Brian and I found this great piece of green red oak on my neighborhood. He brought his chainsaw over and in no time we had wood to trow on the lathe !
Turning green wood is certainly a treat, and even if we had to turn it in 2 days, it did not crack.
The grain on this piece is really attractive with little sapwood and a strange red scar (see picture #2).
The finish is our traditional friction polish (1/3 shellac, 1/3 BLO, 1/3 DNA) followed by lacquer.
Many thanks to Emmanuelle for the great pictures.
Thanks for watching
