WEED POTS

Brad
>I was given several hand-hewn oak beams from a barn built around 1900. The beams are dry, but solid. One thing I would like to do with this wood is make some weed-pots. I would like to hollow out the end grain, but have never attemted end grain turning with dry, hard wood. Any suggestions on how to do this before I put this wood on the lathe and mess it up? Thanks in advance!
