Last weekend, I begged a few lengths of fresh red alder from an arborist working the neighbourhood. I really like turning wet wood and especially red alder as the sap turns red as it dries, which intensifies the grain somewhat. Inside one of the pieces I found this goblet, but the log wouldn't let it go. Oven-dried the same day, 6 hours at 170F
I've only used the oven drying for completed works so truing up is not an option as the wall thickness was maybe 3/16" no more. Thanks for the reply and input nonetheless. There are many people out here willing to help that I know for sure. Take good care Gord
