Turning raw wood
I am new to the site and in search for help. I have been doing woodworking projects for several years now, but woodturning is a new venture. I am looking for advice when it comes to turning raw wood, such as trimmings from cutting firewood. I have plentiful opportunities at logs and branches, and have been thinking about using those for turning. I do have a draw knife to strip the bark and let a piece dry. And I have access for many different types of wood, I am thinking of using Ashe and maybe oak. Any suggestions on the best method/tools to bring a piece down?
