thin walled green bowl

>I have a natural edge maple bowl I am beginning to turn. It's green and prone to crack (sitting in a plastic bacg with shavings right this minute). If I wanted to turn it down thin enough to let it finish drying (or maybe help it with a microwave) without fear of cracking, how thin should it be?

What about the base? Can it be thicker?

Any tips on the procedure here would be much appreciated...
