Cherry Tree Q

Post by BORDEN10 » Mon, 04 Sep 2000 08:31:53


We just dropped a Cherry tree (30" dia at the base) and I'd like to sell chunks
of the branches for bowl turning.  The branches are probably 14" in diameter
and taper to 5"...after that we trashed the rest of the stuff.

I have a small lumber mill in our area (orlando) handling all the wood for me.

Do bowl turners like to start with a round chunk or square?  I would guess
round, but I am not a turner.  

How thick?   Is there some sort of ratio between the diameter of the log and
the depth?

thanks in advance

ps..please e mail me directly...I don't get here often
