I am slightly invading this forum as I have no experience or knowledge of wood turning. I have however had to cut down (not personally) a number of trees from our garden. Silver birches, a large sycamore, some other that I can’t remember off the top of my head and the future of a very large birch is not looking bright (nor is the room behind it).
We still have a lot of the logs and I would like to commission something out of them but am not sure what. Ideally I would love to have a set of deep and shallow bowls made but the cost of a building restoration means that is not possible right now and is unlikely until we are finished (probably in about 4 years).
Does the wood need to season (?) and how long could we keep it for before it is no good.
Does anyone have any suggestions of things that I could commission?
