Turning blanks?

My mom had some damaged trees from the Halloween surprise snowstorm and recently had a tree guy come and take them down, as well as a few trees that had always worried her. Normally, I’d just be out there splitting the wood for burning next season, but now I’m thinking a few of these should get some anchor seal slapped on the end and used for turning blanks. At the very least some of the straighter branches could used for spindle practice. All red oak, so nothing too exciting.
