Imagine coming upon that scene, an idle Mustang, shards of wood underneath said crowd-eater, and three men in labcoats examining said pieces of wood in the middle of the culdesac. Oh the things you see in Florida

ld try hard wood(oak or cerry) rather than soft wood If you want to go all out use green curupy. i'm sure the results would be different

Perhaps turning the wood on a Lathe first and then consider hollowing the shaft with a few support bands around the exterior like a barrel.

Orientate the grain counter to the rotation and have someone turn it on a lathe
shadowsaidhe Il y a 2 mois
if you were going to use wood you should have used hardwood and when it was still up on the hoist you could have at least used the grinder on it like a lathe to get it a bit better balanced
cadmonkey928 Il y a 2 mois

Benny T Il y a 2 mois
@FiveMinuteHippo I'd think at least, bamboo would have more torsional strength than most hardwood even.
FiveMinuteHippo Il y a 2 mois
Agreed, Bamboo should be way more durable.
