Big John

I have worked with wood just about all my life and am really getting to use the equipment that I have been building up over the years. My shop is small but full. I enjoy taking rough lumber and plane it to size. I have recently cut a red oak tree that is around 300 years old that died during this summers drought. There was a knot that is about 24" tall and 12" across the base that is marbled. Anybody have any suggestions on how I could quick dry it?

No such thing.
You either kiln it and take your chances or take time, and sticker it right for long term air dry.
Kiln is vicious and you take your chances.
