I have a pretty piece of wood I would like to turn to make a "dry arrangement" vase.
I am pretty much a novice at turning. The wood has some cracks. The area where a branch started has all sorts of wood grain changes.
The long straight line is a pencil mark, not a crack.
The wood is genuine pallet. It is 1 3/4 x 2 2/8 x approx 10". It is a hard, heavy, dense piece of wood.
The questions are:
Would you attempt to turn this piece of wood?
How would you do it to protect yourself?
Just plain ole, "How would you do it?"
It looks like fun. However, I don't want to kill myself in the process and I would like it to look decent when I'm finished.
Thanks a million for any help.
