End Grain Bowls

Steve in NC
>I have a couple of logs with very nice contrasting heartwood and sapwood. I think they would be very pretty bowls or hollow forms if turned endgrain up. I have never turned a bowl in this oreintation. Can it work. Will the bowls check as they dry. Do you use the same roughing, drying, finishing process that you would normally use for green wood.

Thanks for you advice.
