Working from green wood has always been my passion. This demonstration will cover all the highlights of mounting a half log, adjusting the position between centers to maximum the exposure and direction of the grain, rough cutting the form, slicing the fibers to refine the design, shear-scraping the surface to gain a 220 grit surface prior to sanding, and reverse chucking the form on a home-made jam chuck to finish the base.
