During the storms we've had recently, among the trees that were blown over were 4 ~ 5 cherry trees my neighbor had planted at the edge of their large yard. The 56mph gusts we had blew them over, and my neighbor decided they were history...so he cut them up. I saw it, stopped by and asked if I could have the larger wood (trunks and larger limbs). "Sure, take anything you want" was all I wanted to hear.... So, tomorrow I going to pick up what looks like some I can use for turning.
Here are just 2 pieces I brought back for pics. I'm surprised how heavy the wood is, but I'm used to getting cedar at my local lumber yard "dumpster".
I want to try turning it green for practice, and learning DNA bath techniques, which I believe is the alternative to a long drying time. If all works out, some simple bowls and maybe some pens.
Since I'm a total newby to this, any comments, advice, tips will be welcome.
Thanks, and more pics to come tomorrow.
