I turned a camphor bowl this week, yesterday in fact. It’s already dry enough to seal. I will seal anything below about 30% moisture. It just wont matter at that level. My new kiln is doing a great job of taking the moisture out gently, yet quickly. Some woods will, of course, vary. I have a Ambrosia maple bowl in there from yesterday as well but it is way too wet still. Some wood just dry differently is all.
Here is another ambrosia maple that I did several days ago. Took about 4 days in the dehydrator. This has one coat of ArmRseal on it. The style idea came from some of the work of Paul Hines.
This little guy is Bradford Pear. It’s the last bowl I did in the microwave and the last I’ll probably do in one.
This is 6BF of padauk. I have no plans for it yet, but I’m glad I have it around.
