>JL: Is the process I described above I am referring to the rough turned blanks turned down to 1 to 2 inches thick. And yes we have species that we boil in square blanks also to prevent cracking. We are now experimenting with boiling and drying gunstock blanks out of some of the high figure woods. Never having really worked with North American or African woods I cannot say much but I would certainly think boiling ebony, pink ivory and some of the other extremly delicate woods would be benificial.
