I split this old piece I had laying in the garage for over a year now. How do you think I should cut it to make pen blanks? Cross grain or with the grain? Might even do a small bowl with some of it.


My chain saw was dull when I split it.

Ok here are 2 of the blanks I made one is cross cut and the other is cut with the grain. All I did was wet them a little with water.

Might cut some at an angle... otherwise the cross cut looks better.
I'm not going to cut anymore till I get a new blade for the band saw. But I plan on cutting some at a angle.
