I was given this hunk of mulberry. It is well aged indoors, maybe ten years. I'm not sure if I should try turning into a large bowl (after pre-rounding with the chain saw) or splitting in two and making two vases. Remember, my lathe is a 1/2 hp with slowest speed of600 rpm. The hunk is about 19"X14"X9" thick.
p.s. that's not a split on top, it's a saw mark.
