The Woodturning Process Part 1
The woodturning process begins with what else? The wood. There are many sources of wood. For many of my projects I use urban hardwoods that otherwise would be headed to the landfill or firewood pile. I first cut the wood into manageable pieces using a chainsaw. These pieces are then cut down to size on a bandsaw.
After rough turning I cover the entire piece with the greenwood sealer. The pieces are then set aside to air dry. This typically takes 4 to 6 months for smaller pieces and up to a year for larger ones.
