Turning Archive 2007
>I've roughed a green, maple 16" x 5" deep bowl to 1.25" thick. If I want to finish turn it now and let it distort, how thick can I leave it with minimal chance of it cracking? I'd like to leave it 3/4" for looks. Is that too thick? The blank is from the middle of a straight trunk and the tree was downed last week. I'll try to post a pic later tonight (probably add it to Barbara's 'just a bowl' thread).
