I loaded a fresh cut Norfolk Island Pine log on a lathe and it was aprox 24” long. Instead of parting of the two end sections from the bowl that I wanted in the middle, I decided to rough out three bowls at a time. NIP branches (turned endgrain) make for a nice pattern in the interior of the bowl. I now need to let the bowls spalt by putting them in a black trash bag for about a 20-30 days. I will then put CA glue on the branch knots (to keep them from cracking) and then put them in a brown paper bag to dry for a few months, after which I will return then down to 3/8 or 1/4” thickness.
This is my first post. Mark
