cedar hurts

905 views and 0 favorites in

I wanted to turn a bowl with feet. Simple enough, till a foot shears off and nails you in the Adams apple. I love turning bowls and cedars a beautiful wood but it is down right dangerous! Green cedar will lull you into a false sense of security. Dry cedar screams like a banshee when turned. I plan on trying this design again with a more stable wood, I’m thinking black walnut, if anyone has any suggestions they would be more than appreciated.

-- look up in the sky, it's a bird, it's a plane, no it's a big hunk of the bowl I was turning.
