If you go to the sawmilling section we show pictures of stuff we cut for turners. I milled a log just like this (this one is mine, the other guys took the first one) for 2 turners last weekend, spalted hackberry.

I will have pictures next week of some turning I have to do. Very mundane compared to you guys work. I have to make some 1 1/4" X 12" wooden screws for a guy. Gotta turn a dowel with a big head and then thread it, like I said boring, but a lathe will be involved at least.

Daren the turning to me is fun, i am meant to be retired but still have work to do, and we all have the bread and butter stuff to do, i did some bolts some months back 10 of them 8" 1 set at 3/4" and 1 set at 1" all out of yew, was a shame really the yew was some of the best i have seen and threaded great, i have a few threaders but do enjoy hand chasing, i found that if you do not get the size round down to the correct size you are wasting your time witht the wooden box threaders, get them just right and thread great, bit of soft beeswax and your motoring.. I never find lathe work boring whatever it is. Again another nice loggy, i wounder if i could hack it out and paddle it home, how long do you think it would take me.. LB

I don't mean this in a bad way...but I think you will need a bigger log
I turned one of the screws this afternoon just to see how long it would take, not long .

Daren,
Curious how thick you cut those for the turners?

The wood like the log in the picture I cut 4" thick. They were standing right here and told me that is what they wanted. I don't stock a huge amount for turning (can't keep it around really) It was nice for a change to not have to guess "how thick" they just hauled off some 4" thick x 12"-16" wide x 7' long slabs. The guys said they would take it from there on cutting out the size blanks they needed.
