>Having just started in hollowforms, I have one question. Do you normally take a wet piece of wood and go directly to the finished product, or turn it rough and let it dry before the final turning? I've tried a couple of small ones by rough turning and drying using the DNA method, but they both cracked around the opening. It seems to me that if I went directly from wet wood to finished product, I would have the same problem. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks.
