Do you guys think that the lacquer will slow the drying process?
I can still put it in a bag. :)
I have problems re-chucking things. I've thought about trying the "rough it out and finish turning it later" method, but whenever I try to rechuck something, it always ends up way off center. I can't imagine dealing with warpage on top of that.
I saw a video recently of a fella who took a log that had only been cut from the tree about a month prior, he cut it down, turned it, finished it, and put it right on the table with no additional drying time, and no mention of "it might crack or warp." So, having less patience than most, I thought I'd try it.
