just had to use my lathe over the holidays. Grabbed small firewood piece (slightly green) and turned it. First time to turn “branch” between centers without cutting in half and avoiding the center wood. I assume it will crack some day, but fell in love with the unique grain pattern of this little chunk ‘o wood.
