Speaking of the stability of dried stock, I have just been turning a bowl out
of some curly maple that I have had for over 22 years, stored in my basement
shop, now in my “woodwrights” shop. After turning the outer profile and
reversing it to start the interior, it moved like it was green, as the internal
stresses got to work. I hope the slab in question doesn’t have figure!
P.S., I have recently discovered how much better a number 40 (dedicated
scrubber) works for hogging off material as opposed to a “scrubbed” (cambered)
