>I have read that rough turning a green bowl to a wall thickness of 10% of the diameter will allow clean-up to round after it dries. However, I finish turned a green hackberry bowl and allowed it to distort as it pleased. Final size: 7-5/8 wide x 9 long. Would it have changed this much if I had rough turned it then let it dry? (I tried to post a picture, but the file was too large & I can't seem to shrink it down)
