Not every project results in a beautiful object. Some I do well in advance with a beautiful object in mind. This is the case in this video.

I was given some fresh cut or green cherry logs. I promptly ripped each in half through the pith. Some I cut into bowl blanks.

However, some I left long and turned into long cylinders for later projects. Each was waxed. I’ll leave them to dry until needed. When I want to use one, I’ll weigh it on about a 2 week interval. When it stops losing weight, it will be dry.

Future spindle projects in the making.

Good turning.
