Turning Archive 2008
>Is there a book that will tell me the doís and donít of wood selection for segment turnings? More specifically I see a lot of wood combinations on ornaments, bowls and boxes and wonder how they are sanded and finished without contamination or discoloring light woods if the darker woods bleed. It would seem if you wipe down between sanding grits you could easily stain the light woods.
I want to glue up some thinner hardwood pieces to make some blanks for small end grain boxes. The book I have on boxes does not really give this type construction, just inlaid pieces. Any comments welcome.
