Man I'm tired of turning tops. My wife volunteered me to turn some tops for a fundraiser at the local 4th of July shindig here in North Ogden. It's Cherry Days because at one time our little town was predominately a cherry farming community. So they want cherry tops. I didn't get a lot of notice, just found out last tuesday. I was given a few green fruit cherry logs and since tuesday I've cut up the wood and managed to turn 48 tops. But they want at least 100 by the 4th. Does anyone have a good production method for turning tops. So far I'm using walnut dowels for the stems, cherry wood for the rest. I wouldn't mind hearing from anyone that's ever had to turn a bunch of them in a hurry.
