End Grain or Side Grain

Sean Troy
>Hey all, when turning a hollow vessel, do you prefer turning end or side grain? I have always done end grain turning of hollow vessels and can sometimes have a rough go at it with the woods we use here in Arizona. I would imagine with side grain turning, the pith would come into play and was wondering how you manage to avoid problems. Thanks, Sean
