Turning chisel handles

Kevin French
Not much of a turner question.

I have Black Locust I want to turn for handles on some old chisels.

The moisture content is 19-24% in the pieces, most of them in the 22-24 range.

Should I dry them bit more and turn them to size or turn them now a little larger and adjust when dry?
