>I am roughing out a bowl out of Black Cherry. Its about 8" and the wood is green. This is on my jet mini, so is large for the lathe. I have done the back and have it mounted in a talon chuck, but with the live center in the middle.
How long can I / should I leave the center in place?
How thick should I leave the rough bowl to dry?
Thickness should be fairly consistent to dry?
Once I have a rough shape, how should I dry it? Fast slow?
