>Thanks for the info, Jim. It's very helpful. I'm going to try boiling my Bloodwood peppermill blanks. I've got one of those outdoor turkey boilers/fryers that might be suitable for boiling blanks. After the boiling process is finished, do you store the blanks in any particular way for drying? I've read where some people put tape on one side of the blank, or put them in paper bags, or use other special methods for the drying phase. Also, I have some fresh Apple Wood, that I'm trying to dry. Do you think boiling Apple Blanks would work OK? I've heard Apple is very prone to cracking.
