Turning Softwoods
By John Wolf


I live in southeastern Ohio where many fine woods are “domestic”: oak, hickory, cherry, ash, poplar, walnut, mulberry, hard and soft maple, osage orange, and many more. Most of these are free or nearly so, if you are drawn by the sound of a chainsaw. Despite the abundance of hardwoods, there are occasions when I use soft woods, particularly “2-by-” construction lumber, either for their specific properties or from expedience.
