I sharpened all the tools for an older friend. He left me 2 pieces of wood. Bless his heart they were horrible. Cracks everywhere. This one was about 14" and chainsaw cuts at every angle. Looked like a faceted jewel. big Cracks everywhere. I almost tossed it but just for the heck of it put it on the lathe after some rough shaping with the bandsaw. After I cut out most of the cracks I was left with a piece about 5 x 6. It still had 2 cracks but they blend in with the figure of the wood so I left them. I sure as heck didn't think I would get something this nice out of that piece.
