Turning Archive 2006
>In my never-ending search for something I am good at, I am starting to try some end-grain turnings. I have made a couple of goblets out of dry maple and I've done some christmas ornaments out of dry spruce (old Christmas tree).
I have some maple and other free wood in my storage but it is in various stages of dryness.
Should I wait a long time until they are dry and then turn them?
Can I do the rough turn to 10% of diameter, dry, finish-turn, trick like I do on my bowls?
How dry should they be if I just want to do a one-time finish turn?
Any other advice?
