Glue blocks and green wood?

Carole in VA
>Do they work together? If so, what glue? I put a tool to green wood for the first time tonight (a chunk of holly) and boy, was it fun! Endless strips of linguini shavings piling up! (At least I must have done something right in the sharpening process) Haven't made anything with it cause I don't have a chuck yet and am not sure exactly how to do anything with it except turn it between centers! Do the screws on the faceplate hold well in end grain and green wood? Sigh...sure wish I could shake loose to go get a turning lesson somewhere!
