So yesterday on my way home from the office I passed by the guy shown below throwing these Maple pieces into a large chipper after he had fell the tree.
I only had my small daily driver but filled the trunk with as much as would fit. Here is what made it home.
Not thinking the wood would be used for anything inparticular the worker cut the pieces a little odd. Some of them showing a lot more end grain than side. I added letters to the photos so that you could comment on a specific piece
I need some advice on how you guys would prep these for turning blanks (im thinking mostly bowls)
Please take a look at the pieces and if you have an idea of how to prepare one, let me know
I pretty much understand how to prepare a regular round for a standard bowl blank or natural edge bowl.
But how realistic is it to turn a bowl with end grain running parallel with the lathe bed?
