Where are you located? Contact a local woodturning club, and have an inquiry put out to their members. Our club has 180 members and free wood is always available.

Thanks, Mark, I am east of Nashville about 30 miles in Murfreesboro. I don't belong because I don't drive at night and the bugger bears might get me.

Don in Murfreesboro,Tn.

Measure once cut twice and it's still to short.

Been using Titebond II for many years. It's stronger than the wood, I often use it thinned as a finish, I like the color, so far haven't needed a clear drying glue but if I do I will get some, and I'm quite satisfied with Titebond so will keep using it. Water resistance is not an issue, I carry my cane in the bed of my pickup, it gets trained on, it gets dry, it holds up well. If I want something water proof, I'll get water proof glue.

Call me a craftsman, artisan, or artistic, and I will accept that. Call me an artist and you will likely get a quite rude comment in return. I am not a @#$%ing artist.

Don try searching for "kiln dried bowl blanks". There are listings on both Ebay and Amazon and Google search will find a few places that carry kiln dried bowl blanks. Just make sure the listing is for "kiln dried" because they are kind of intermixed.

Go to the AAW website and locate their clubs for TN. I know there is one in Cookeville but meets at night.

Go to the AAW website and click on Chapters and fill in some of the info. There are several chapters in TN. This is public information. If you are looking for wood and can have time to let it dry, check with tree services.

Look up something like, DRYING WOOD IN MICROWAVE FOR BOWL TURNING.

The puff on their web site leads one to think that Weldbond is food safe. Your thoughts on that Stick. I know Titebond III is so that is what Ive been using for boards and bowls.

Thanks.

The one advantage to glueing up your own bowl blanks is the ability to mix the grains as to achieve the best pattern. To that end I offer up my post of 5-06-2018, First Routed Bowl.
