I was sorting through my boxes of cut-offs today, and came upon a number of pieces similar to this one:
8/4 Mahagony pieces... I realize I could turn bottle stoppers or some such, with the grain along the axis of the turning. can those be turned with the grain going opposite the axis?
Also, I've got a bunch of pieces similar to the one in the background: 10/4 QSWO. That one is probably going to be a bandsaw box, but I've got a fair amount of 3/4 oak pieces. I was thinking of small platters or bowls out of those, or should I just toss them on the burn pile?
