>I finally got my lathe,its still on the pallet and tommorrow I am going to work on getting it set up. I had a guy that was clearing his lot tell me I could get any wood I wanted off it cause he was going to burn it up.There is some oak,shagbark hickory,sweet gum trees that were cut about 3 weeks ago. I cut some straight pieces and a couple of crotchs. I have Bill Grumbines DVD and see how to cut the straight pieces, but how do you cut the crotch pieces up for blanks? bowls or anything?
