First, I am not a turner and know nothing about it.
My question is, as I'm cutting back and cutting down some stuff in the jungle, better known as my yard, how big (diameter? length) does a piece have to be for it to be useable for a turner?
Also, since I read a lot about turners working on green wood, what if something is standing and dead? Thoroughly completely dead....will turners turn something that's dead?
Also, what if it's something that's a wood I've never seen/heard talked about like a burl on a Magnolia or some such oddity.
And BTW, no, I'm not cutting down everything, just a few things to, say, see out the window.
Just want to know if I should save any interesting bits for Secret Santa....
