Determining moisture content

Alan Tolchinsky
>Hi All, I have some wood that I bought that is waxed and green. The shavings coming off the piece seem pretty dry. If I turn to finish in one session I get some warping over time. But if I rough turn and let it dry, how do I know when it's dry enough and stable? Is there some test you can do without buying an expensive moisture meter? Thanks!
