>We are currently testing various drying forms of rough turned boiled bowls. Here are the results of a group of rough turned peices 10 days after boiling. As you see on the graph we had a moisture content of 100% when cut until fresh rough turned. 10 days later all have dropped at the same time drasticly to 15 to 25% moisture content and seem to have stabilized. Dont ask my why but this is how it worked out. Not a one cracked. Now we will throw them into the lumber kiln for a week and get them down to 6% or less.

We are doing this with other forms also but the process is much slower so when we get results we will publish them.
