And on any wood, green or dry, sanding on the spinning lathe will create concentric scratches that are almost impossible to remove, no matter how fine the paper. Also, sanding softens the crisp details that I have taken so much care to make.

In a riven turning blank the split follows the direction of the grain, so all the wood fibers in the blank run from one end of the piece to the other. Riven wood is therefore tough and capable of flexing. Had the turning blank been sawn, the cut would have run in a straight line, ignoring the direction of the grain. A turning made from sawn wood risks having its grain run out at a narrow point, as shown below. When the leg is under stress, the wood may break along the grain at that point. indd 34 break is nearly impossible.
