Son in law presents me with a walnut stump. It is freshly cut and dug out. About 20 inches across at ground level. There is about thirty inches from above the ground. I know how to handle that part. There is about 30 inches of the root ball from below the ground, possibly 20 inches across for a couple of feet before roots start branching out. I already know how to dull my chain saw cutting wood with dirt in it or rocks surrounded by root growth. So, before I start, any wisdom about the value of working the portion of the stump that was below ground? I may have to make a new friend of the fellow who has a contract to take down trees and pull stumps for son in law's city.
I watch a lot of turning videos on youtube. In one of Carl Jacobson videos he said he cuts the heart out of a log and paints the ends with basic paint and doesn't get any cracking. Since I got the new bandsaw I figured I would give it a try. I made a jig to hold the log and made some bowl blanks real fast and easy. They will turn a 9 inch to 10 inch bowl.
