No Longer Here, BY CHOICE
So, this is the oil and not moisture? The blanks were dry to the touch and they looked dry. I noticed the dampness when I cut the blank and it was very damp. I would think if it was just the natural oils in the wood, I would have noticed the wet looking end grain before I even cut it, no? I havnt worked with olivewood before so I really dont know. So, am I ruining these blanks by nuking them? Ive put them through 6 or 8, 15 second cycles now and they are noticably lighter.
