Alcohol soaking question?

>Always read about alcohol soaking, but never tried it.
I now have some wood that I need to process as quickly as possible into bowls. Couple of questions:
1. I assume you would rough turn the bowl - when it soaks does it go oval? How much oversize do you need to turn it?
2. How long do you soak? 3. Does alcohol change anything about how you have to finish the wood? TIA
