>I find that there is a demand for natural-edged red oak bowls with spalted sapwood. I also found that there was a 3 1/2 foot log at the end of my street which was mine for the taking. With my new Robust lathe I was set to use the McNaughton system to core some of the bowls.

I have learned two things:
1. There is a learning curve.
2. A slower speed just may be what it takes for a successful coring. DAMHIKT
