What do you do when you have a beautiful piece of wood, but it's cracked in a way that makes it dangerous to turn?
I finally finished editing and uploading a video I made while working on a new piece Split Box Elder Vase. It's my first real attempt at making a video, and I learned a lot about lighting, audio, and how lousy my camera is. Feel free to let me know if I left out important info, if you prefer to see more turning, etc..... I think this would be fun to try again in the future.
There isn't a ton of actual turning, mainly because I didn't use any special techniques or tooling. Rather, it chronicles the process, my thoughts, and the methods used to safely get this piece off the lathe.
