I've heard that too Don. I've also heard that you can speed the drying process up by putting it in a microwave. I've never tried either one yet. I know Bernie has and I remember one post he made where he says you have to get it to a certain stage before you stop and let it dry. I remember him saying that he was turning one when he got company and had to leave it and by the time he got back to it that it was ruined. I'm guessing that internal stresses had warped it too badly or split it. It sounded like there are some tricks to doing it and I don't know what they are but if someone wanted to know maybe we could pm Bernie and get him to explain it.
Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.
