    Every time I use it in a demo, I update the PowerPoint which talks properties of wood, how it warps and tips for turning green wood successfully.

    In January 2017 Jan and Carl Brown made a video of the working with green wood demo I did for the tri-county Woodturners.
    I posted the two turning parts of the demo on YouTube. There are many ways to make a bowl.
    In some methods youndon't even need a lathe. These videos show the way I turn a bowl. You may find it useful
