>I have never used my Easy Core on dry wood. I have always cored green wood and grocery sacked it for several months while it warped and dried.

I usually core using the 10% rule for wall thickness. Can I ignore that rule with this wood?
Are there any special considerations for coring dry wood?
Are there any special considerations for using my Easy Core? Such as heat, or lubrication.
