It seems wood sculpture is becoming part of the AAW per a recent cover story and gallery photos. So my question is how are these large, thick pieces dried to prevent cracking? I know about turning wet wood to over thickness for drying, then re-turning. I've also been led to believe kiln drying only works up to a certain thickness. Maybe certain species can be kiln dried in thicker sections? I recently gave a 6" x 6" by 4 foot piece of dry Alaskan yellow cedar to a native carver, that piece (I think) was dimension-ally beyond the kiln drying capacity of most woods.
