do i need to seal a roughed turned green bowl?
i traditionally make wild game calls. I have a lot of stock that i have harvested myself. my question is, do i need to seal a bowl blank after i have roughed turned it? i have only turned dried wood before, and knowing that it is easier to turn bowls wet, just don't want them to check or crack after i am done with them? i have some beautiful plum tree and dog wood that i would like to start on just don't want to waste the wood. I have plenty of anchorseal, just don't know if i need to put it on or let it cure on the shelf??
