>I managed to get a nice section of fresh cut poplar which I wanted to practice on before I tried some CHOICE 18" cherry that I was able to score earlier this week. This stuff had to have been cut in the last day or so, after a cut the water was nearly dripping onto my new lathe bed. The shavings were remarkable and I was soaked after two 12" bowls were completed. I love my new lathe! I thought I had turned green wood before but this was a new experiance!
