Default Re: Show your wood

I always use as big a stave as I can, less glue/ more wood=better.
Most of my stock is 1 inch thick which leaves quite a bit to play with on the lathe.
This Birdseye maple is 7x14 and used only 14 staves.

Same as this mahogany/walnut, and I even had room on this to account for the Walnut being a little narrower than the African mahogany.
