Drying lilac

Steve Kubien
>Evening everybody,

Anything special I need to know about drying some lilac? I was given a few branches, about 4" diameter unto which I have melted wax (the ends). I've also got word that a downed trunk is mine for the taking. It's about 10ft long, including the crotch section and 8-10" in diameter. With the trunk I was planning to make some bowl stock and a few billets for spindle work (possibly boxes).

Sage advice? Anythying to watch for? I've never worked with lilac before.

Thanks,
Steve Kubien
