While some say there are three stages to turning a bowl, for me there are four. Number one is getting the wood supply. Most of the time this is green wood because wood thick enough to make a bowl is too expensive to dry. If you go to the wood store it can be expensive in a hurry. While that may be okay for the occasional special piece, I like to start with green wood at the firewood pile. turning green wood pile
