There's a special enjoyment in turning green wood, as the fragrant shavings flow smoothly from the skew or gouge. Green wood bowls can be turned to a delicate translucency using the techniques described in this book.
In addition to giving detailed instructions, profusely illustrated in color, for six types of bowls and goblets, O'Donnell discusses sources, planning (seeing the bowl in the tree), and solving green wood's special problems, warp and shrinkage. Here's a source of inspiration and instruction, both a manual and an idea book.
