Note: While the wood grain seems to be everywhere, I can guarantee to you that the blanks were cut following the log grain, this can be explained due to the log being part of the tree crotch.
I'm located in the SA Fleurieu Peninsula, about 70km south of Adelaide, at the edge of the Adelaide Hills.
This very large tree was removed partially (only the trunk left) but a local tree company and a friend of mine have requested me if I would help him to cut the rest down so that he could have the necessary correct log sizes for his large bowls/platters turning and I could have about half of the cut wood to add to my collection as I never had this wood before to work with.
The tree/wood was obviously green as the tree was still alive when cut that made the logs weigh far too much so, cutting to "handling sizes" had to be revised by both of us as we both are old enough to be doing such a job but with some effort, the cut woods got in both our yards.
I proceeded to process a few logs into oversize pen blanks and put them to air dry, I put also a few in the fan-forced kitchen oven so that they would dry to make them available on my web-store a lot sooner than the blanks that were cut and are air-drying.
Wood is extremely easy to work with and obtains a good finish with little efforts
The blanks were waxed at one face for colour enhancement.
