>Hi Steve

Thanks for the extra post. It sounds like you had a long day of roughing at the lathe. Before I bought my Poolewood, I had a Nova 1500, which is the predecessor of your machine. The only real difference was that the ways were round solid steel bars. I had the same motor.

I know just what it is like roughing out those big blanks, but it is worth the effort, even if it turns out to be red oak and not chestnut oak. Chestnut oak is a variety of white oak, but you may already know that. Good luck with the drying process. Oak is a tough one to dry, especially red oak. I will look forward to seeing the finished product.

Bill
