I just purchased four blocks of Tupelo Wood 5X5×12 inches, all individually sealed in plastic,
what is the best way to store them and not dry out. Dose the sealing in plastic maintain the
moister if any at all. Presently I have them stored under my carving bench in my out door
covered car port where they won’t dry out.
I have also read about what other wood carvers have done to reintroduce moister to their Tupelo
carving blocks, they sock them in water mixed with alcohol and place them into their freezers.
Any other suggestions, since I live out west where Tupelo carving wood is hard to find, I purchase
mine from vendor in the Southern Eastern States and buy enough to last me awhile.
Thanks for any input,
