I am not a master turner by all means, but, 1st, If you cut the logs like you would for splitting for firewood, then, cut the pith, yes, cut the pith (center of the log, fer those unaware), outta it. Then, you have 2 blanks. You could get fancy and round off the corners if you have a band saw, but, not really necessary. If you did have a band saw, you could also cut those halves into half, and you’d have 4 bowl blanks. You could leave the logs longer, and make you some lumber yourself also. Many options. Good luck with it all.
