Friends are already giving me limbs and felled trees to turn and since these four limbs are mostly 5 1/2" to 7" dia (not including bark), I figured I'd cut them as long as they are round and then in half and just practice making saw dust. But two of the pieces I want to save and see what can me made of them as I get my skill up. Knott One: I saw this beautiful knot and thought it would be a waste to just cut it off. My question is, can I turn it along the axis of the pith and make a vase to save the grain pattern underneath? The top is roughly 6" dia and the base 5 1/4" and I figured I'd cut it double the knot length (5") to make a vase with the grain under the knot being the focus? Your thoughts? Butt Two: The second piece was cut at a 45 degree angle and I thought it would just be cut off scrap until I saw the grain, wow... What can I do with this to save/accent that? I am really looking forward to digging into these. Thank you for your comments.
