Thanks for the response. I watch your videos as soon as they come out. I love them all!
I'm in Longmont, Colorado, so I have the same humidity and temperature issues as you probably do in Wyoming. My worst problem is my wood is either too dry and cracking or still wet inside and when I turn it, the wet wood gets exposed and dries out and cracks after turning.
Thanks for the answers to my questions about the Japanese turner. I was really impressed and intrigued by that video.
