Crotch orientation

Brad
>Back on 04 May there was a string of discussion concerning the best way to take bowl blanks from the crotch of a tree. I know this must sound really dumb, but I've read through this at least 4 times and I'm still not sure what the best orientation is. My neighbor just gave me a nice section of walnut trunk with a crotch, I want to make the best use of it. Will someone please explain the best orientation?
