      It isn't that critical which corners you use. But if you look at the end grain, you should be able to tell by the curve of the grain which corner would be on the outside of the trunk. You should see convex and concave growth rings and use the corner on the convex side of the rings. That will usually make the grain pattern even on each side of the face which may be slightly more pleasing in appearance.

        Skip, in the photo at the post Nebraska linked to I moistened the end grain of the basswood block with water. That really helped me to see the grain direction. You might try it on you block.

          Good question! You might have to break out your calculator.... a2 + b2 = c2

          Just kidding! Grain pattern is the key!

            Ha! Eddy Pythagoras!

            This would make a good carving model...

              I could not open the link to the article. So would A be the corner at the outermost point of the ring?

                Try this link to the thread:

                If the link doesn't work just look for the post titled:
                Carving on the corner, which corner? In this forum (Wood Carving for Beginners).
