Does you wood look anything like the woods on this page?

I could not find anything on eucylitus spel.

If a bowl blank might rough turn and set aside to dry. I will also end seal a bowl blank if not going to do anything with it for a while.

For spindle, blanks will seal ends and set aside to dry out.

I use paraffin wax or latex paint depending upon size. Commercial products such as Green Wood Sealer or Anchor seal work well too! I have an outside storage area (wood shed) wood hangs out until get to it, will bring into shop for couple week or months until do something with it.

Of course wood never really dries because ability to lose and gain moisture. I just wait until wood reaches EMC, (equilibrium moisture content).

In my area, that is about 20% MC or less. I do not use a moisture meter or scales. Pretty much go by experience with different species have worked with. I know the difference between weight of fresh cut, six months, or wood that’s year or more old.
Good luck with it.
