I took a pinon pine log and turned it to see what it might look like. had not tried it before. looks ok and since I live in a pinon/juniper forest area there is no shortage of stock——————

very nice, looks like end grain. no problem with cracking. would like to try the blue pine. what process do you go through to stop it from cracking. I have been turning birch as is only hard wood that grows here. Would be nice to use some of the other soft woods. Thanks for sharing

brian- the pine was already quite dry, been lying in covered pile for more than a year. after turning I coated with watco natural oil finish—should be good to go. If your wood is wet ,try a minute or two in the microwave while wrapped in paper towel
