Turning Blanks?

By no means, I am a master turner.
The question is what what kind of blanks?

Bowls are very different from pens, handles, salt/pepper shaker…..etc.

If you are doing rectangular block type of turning blanks (pens, handles, salt/pepper shaker…..etc), I would think all you need is a band saw and table saw. I am assuming the rough planks are already done.

To me the bowls are very interesting, these turners use saws and axes to chop their blanks out of green wood. Firewood verses valuable lumber? It is up to the wood turner to decide. I need to try this sometime.
