I’m having particularly bad luck drying recent beech rough turned bowls. These bowls were from a tree that was taken down a month ago, and rough turned within a day of coming down. They are just about 10% wall thickness/diameter and were coated with Highland Woodworking’s End Grain Sealer. I’ve formerly used Anchorseal with good results, but thought I’d give this a shot. I haven’t looked at the bowls til today when I saw how badly they’ve cracked. It has been unusually cold here, 16° F last night. Is this a function of the cheaper sealer? Should I have used more than one coat? Cold? Beech? I’ve got several smaller blanks from the same tree, which so far are not looking bad, but any larger bowls (12” or bigger) are becoming firewood. I’d love to hear any thoughts. Thanks!
