The largest one in the picture by itself is Spalted Pecan, the smallest dark one is apple, the light one on the bottom right in the first pictue is pear and the other two are pecan and maple. All were local yard trees that we cut on the woodmizer, you just can’t find that kind of turning material locally so we cut owr own.

Did you hear that, jocks ? The man in Albany, GA (where I am) has a woodmizer and has pecan, apple, pear and maple ! Sounds to me like time for a barbecue invite ;=)

Lovely turnings. I particularly like the large plate in pic. 4.
I turn apple when I can get it and it really finishes well.You are right about addiction too !!

Beautiful work! Too late for your advice though, I just ordered my first lathe today and can’t wait to give it a shot. Thank you for sharing.

A Woodmizer in Albany, Georgia? WOOHOO! I’ve got an oak tree out front here that needs to come down and looks like part of it is spalted. Northwest Albany at that :D

David G, I drove right past your front door this morning with about 2 tons of quarter sawn white oak on the way back from the sawmill. I will be stacking and stickering most all afternoon.

Next time sling some in the ditch as you go by. I’ll clean it up. I promise. No charge ! ;=)
Hey, while both of you neighbors are here in the same spot: There’a an oak tree close to the airport on private property that you guys have got to see. It makes the old “friendship oak” they took down at Philema (and anything else I have ever seen) look like a joke. Nobody (other than owner and family/friends) knows about it. You will not believe it. The State or University boys would crap their pants. It has lower limbs the size of other “large” trees’ trunks. The owner is Wayne Brazzel and he works at the John Deere dealer on Slappey. It is so big, there’s nowhere to stand to get a picture of it all… and then you’d be so far away that it doesn’t do it justice.
