Subject:
Kiln drying vs. Alcohol drying

Dawn Adams
>I have a VERY NICE friend who offered to build a cabinet bowl drying kiln for me out of a cabinet/light/computer fan (like the one on woodturningonline.com). I am wondering if I want to try drying my bowls using a kiln like this, or would it be easier to just use an alcohol drying method (soak in detured alcohol, then wrap outside in paper)? Anybody have experience in both who can compare the results and ease of use? Any information would be much appreciated.

Thanks!
