    Usually with cedar I do it the same way as my other wood. I will locate the pith and usually make a cut down each side of the pith to almost all the way through the log. Then I will come over to the side of the log about 1-2" from the edge and make a straight cut down each side and then finish cutting the middle out. This gives me 2 nice bowl blanks with absoutly no pith.

    don 716 -- I saw your wood gloat on the cedar that you got. I am new to turning and would like to ask you how you are to handle this cedar. Will you splite out the pith. Can this cedar be turned with the pith in, esp in smaller sizes( 4/6 inch dia) .will you turn the wood now into blanks and dry or allow to dry with bark on. I have access to some aborvite/cedar/western red cedar. Is this wood stable and hold up while turning. Any tips to share would be appreciated. Thanks. NICE LOAD OF CEDAR. John Strunk

    Don I noticed your location north Georgia, I grew up in Flowery Branch back when it only had 2 cop cars for the whole town. The teacher you talked of is he local to that regon. All my family is still up that way so i still visit 2 or 3 times a year. Incorperating that into one of my trips would be great for me. Ive been wood working for some years but just last fall started turning on a lathe.

    Hi Don,

    I like you projects. Particularly the Jeep. How did you make the wheels? Do you have a pattern for this that you would be willing to share?
