question: wood stress

Jim D. Clayton, NJ
>I used the microwave method of drying for the first time this weekend. It was on a small bowl and it really "warped" out of round, much more than I expected. This is not to say it would not have done the same drying any other way, it has a lot of swirl to the grain in it.

My question is , does the heat from this method cause it to distort more than other methods? Would love to hear from some that use this method of drying.
