I dont have a bandsaw so my bowl blanks get roughed out with chain saw. I was wondering if you guys save the corners you whack off the half log? is there a use for these? or the middle of the log? i know the pith is about worthless but what about the 4-5 inches on either side? let it dry out and maybe make bottle stoppers? pen blanks? Toss it on the fire? haha. Thanks y'all.
