Approximate drying time

Doug Reynolds in Seattle
>Harvested logs from a recently downed soft maple tree, rough turned bowls less than ten inches in diameter to about 3/4" - 1" thick, covered the whole thing in Anchorseal and placed in brown paper bag. Without going to moisture meters and elaborate methods, what is a reasonable estimate on how long I should wait before finish turning these bowls. Off to harvest more maple from a huge tree tomorrow.
