Turning Monkey Pod

Ed Larson
>My stepdaughter just brought me two green debarked Monkey Pod logs from Hawaii. They are approx. 10 in dia and 15 inches long. About half the diameter is heart wood. I have sealed the ends. Need some quidance on how to handle them? Turn green and let warp?? Turn to wall to 10% let dry and return?? I'm looking at getting 4 bowls unless I turn and end grain bowl. Any suggestions appricated.
