Thanks for the answers guys!

Maybe I should restate the question.

With all the different green oak and sycamore I have I would like to offer turning blanks for sale, but I don’t have any idea of how to cut them from the log.

Should I cut post sized chunks out of the log and then whack it into pieces across the grain or should I cut the block out of the side grain? Does it really matter?

Pen blanks: What are the best sizes to make pens from? LxWxH? Side Grain or End Grain?
