Recently purchased 4 sycamore turning blanks 3" x 3" x 12" for making tap handles for my beer fridge. They were complete wax coated when I received them so I didn't realize that they were wet until I started rough turning. I have only ever attempted wet turning once before and it didn't go well. I obviously want to avoid cracks so I'm thinking of just rough turning them to 2 1/4" in diameter and sticking them in a paper bage to dry. Is there anything else I need to do?
