I know of a few guys across the nation that use a kiln to dry their roughed out bowls, etc. 1/2 of the bowls I work with are of the 12-19" range and anywhere from 1 to 2 inches thick in places. That being said, it takes some of this stuff YEARS to dry. My shop space is a little limited and with cranking out and average of 10 of these guys a week, and with a years dwell time (even with Alcohol), I'm running out of space FAST.
Has anyone ever heard of people selling kiln space/time? Know of any resources in Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky of PA? OR, am I asking for trouble in attempting to hurry the drying process. I'd like to be able to get to dry stable wood in about 6 months. 3 months to air dry, then however long a kiln takes.
Also, got the 1st cut of a website done. Still spell checking so, pardon the errors :)
