Sycamore
#4
  
I have about 18 pieces of green sycamore off the band saw, Anchorsealed, and stacked.  I am guessing Sycamore is soft and prone to tear-out.  What advice do you have?  Soon I hope to have the time to turn a few of them into 1" thick bowls.

Sycamore is the same as soft maple and just sharp tools will take care of it for sure. Yes

I love to turn it q sawn.
It is always the right time, to do the right thing.

I've only turned one piece, but my recollection is that there were no problems.  Turned out nice.
