Drying green spindles

JL
I used to have a "warm box" - but I had to give it up because of space.

The roughed out white oak spindles are 12-27" long, 1/2" in diameter at the smaller end and 9/16" at the larger end. The bulbs are about 7/8" or less in diameter.

Absent a warm box, how long to dry? They took about 1 week or so in the warm box w/ a 40 or 60 watt shielded light bulb (90 or so degrees). I suppose I could put them in a warm oven (if nobody objected :b) for a period of time. The lowest my oven will go is about 170 degrees - how long do y'all figure for that?
