Ok. How to hollow wet wood?
I am working with smaller objects. Small bowls and globes 3-4" in diameter. The wood is wet. Ambrosia Maple and Camphor.
I have a small 5/16 swan neck with a HSS end and another tool with 10mm circular carbide (2 mm thick). I am getting lots of heating inside the form and drag like dull tools. I know the carbide insert is new and I did grind the HSS end (as normal) with the grind down to 3/16 finger nail.
So I feel like I'm beating my head against the wall.
